Advent 2017 – Tuesday, Dec 19

As we hunker down while it gets colder, we can prepare for Christmas with real depth.

Scripture helps me, especially if I look at it as a living word. For me it breathes life into me and that’s what “inspired” literally means. 

I can breathe a sigh of relief when I realize that we can encounter a real flesh-and-blood Christ in the present, beautifully represented by Bethlehem and full inns. 

I have to be careful to really encounter Christ that isn’t sentimental memory of 2,000 years ago. The Christ of the Trinity is something that is happening today to me and you on the streets, on the slopes, and at our jobs. 

It’s easy to forget what happens in between Christmas and Easter. Jesus’ whole life is what happens! And his whole life is bookended and filled with challenges for us to empty ourselves and let the sap that is Jesus’ life flow into us because he is the vine and we are the branches. Then we can be one as he and the Father are one. 

Then we’ll be sappy and fruity, like a Christmas tree and holiday fruitcake. Yippee!!
