Advent 2021: Wednesday, December 1

December 1, 2021

The traffic, the lines, the people, all of whom forgot how to think, or so it seems… like a scene from Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, and the Island of Mis-fit Toys. You wonder if it will ever end, or at least get any better? 

Pull over, step aside, slow down, and take a long deep breath. Then, dig for that prayer,  “Our Father Who Art in Heaven, Hallowed by Thy Name.” The Father, The Almighty, knows what we are going through. He has given us an answer, One who came as a small helpless babe, Born in the place where few wanted to go, let alone stay.

He came for you, for us, for everyone. He is the Christ in Christmas.
