“What now?” Jesus answered that for us, by climbing out of the river and walking, walking out into the world. may we have the courage to do the same. Share the good news! Celebrate the fact that in this in, in our death, and in our life beyond death, we are never alone. Amen.
Christmas has come and that star is shining bright along our path. So, “what now?”
May you create time for silent listening and mindful waiting, and may it fill you with hope and courage to tell the story of God’s love, God’s liberation and God’s faithfulness in this, our Herod’s time.
May you see heaven breaking into this Herod’s Time of ours, and may you too have reason to sing.
It is into our world as it is, into our lives as they are, that God has always come to God’s people, and it is here that God will meet us again. Let yourself receive God’s grace.
Maybe, if we can open ourselves to remember that as all the chaos of the world swirls around us, hope stays and God works, we’ll learn to see more signs, and experience more trust, and maybe hope in better days will be possible for us all.
Today is about knowing things can be different, about recognizing the hope surrounding us. Today, it’s time to be bothered.
