Preparing for Christmas: Daily Meditations for Advent
The darkness has seemed oh so powerful today. Sending up prayers for the families in Connecticut tonight.
"I believe Jesus was teaching a larger version of what many of us say today when we say that we must 'think globally, act locally.' Because I am part of the Big Picture, I do matter and substantially so. Because I am only a part, however, I am rightly situated off to stage right-and happily so. What freedom there is in such truth! We are inherently important and included, yet not burdened with manufacturing or sustaining that private importance."Happy 2nd Sunday of Advent!
