And so it begins….

uh, and so it BEGAN.  The first Sunday of Advent jumped us when we weren’t quite finished munching our Thanksgiving leftovers. It’s now the first Wednesday of Advent, there’s a carol service at church tonight, and Christmas is only 25 days away.

Yikes!

Advent often presents the challenge of taking time out to prepare our hearts for the Incarnation (the coming of Jesus Christ into the world) whilst dashing madly amidst the holiday rush of things.

So, today, in this first week of Advent, maybe we can take a little time to sit with God…

JC labyrinth bench fall trees…to quietly contemplate the real Joy of the season: Jesus Christ.

“We cannot wait til the world is sane

to raise our songs with joyful voice,

for to share our grief, to touch our pain,

He came with Love: Rejoice! Rejoice!

Madeleine L’Engle (“First Coming“)

Blessings as we enter this season of Advent…

grace, peace & Love Incarnate
