WEEK 4: CULTIVATING CELEBRATION
THE KING IS COMING.
Sunday | December 30
All Earth Is Hopeful
All earth is hopeful, the Savior comes at last! Furrows lie open for God’s creative task: this, the labor of people who struggle to see how God’s truth and justice set everybody free.
People of Israel, you heard the prophet tell: “A virgin mother will bear Emmanuel”; she conceived, “God with us,” our brother, whose birth restores hope and courage to children of this earth.
Mountains and valleys will have to be prepared; new highways opened, new protocols declared. Almost here! God is nearing, in beauty and grace! All clear every gateway, in haste, come out in haste!
We first saw Jesus as a baby in a crib. This same Lord Jesus today has come to live in our world; he is present. In neighbors we see our Jesus is with us, and ever sets us free. Amen!
