Advent reflection shared by Liz Sorensen Wessel
The meaning of Christmas can become obscured by commercialism and the whirlwind of activities that accompanies this season. We worry, about so much to do and so little time. It can crowd out the mystery and beauty of love's unfolding. Quiet reflection reveals the deeper truths of Christmas and the relevance it holds in our lives today.
As Mary and Joseph traveled, they searched for a place to rest but there was no room at the inn. So they journeyed forth into the dark night and came to rest in a stable where Jesus was born. Even though they were crowded out, Love found a way in.
James Finley offers a wonderful analogy between this Holy night long ago and contemporary times. I invite you to pause for a few minutes from your busy day and listen to this incredibly beautiful Advent reflection. Discover the precious gift that awaits you.
