The following devotion comes from Father Richard Rohr, truly one of the strongest voices for a sane religion that we are hearing today. We are now in the Christmas season. May this be a time where we deepen our commitment to live our love. What else can incarnation be but the willingness to love in both the light and the darkness? How can there be salvation without love? It is impossible.
Blessings on your Christmas journey. Come join us when you can.
Rev. Sue Ann
|We are all created for divine union. We are incapable of imagining such daring unity between the human and the divine in ourselves unless we see it imaged as possible in other places and people. Salvation is contagious, and passes around in just that way.
Our little self on its seemingly insignificant journey is a microcosm of what God is doing everywhere and what God did perfectly and visibly in Jesus. God is always putting matter and spirit, human and divine, pain and victory together. It could even be called God’s job description.
Adapted from Near Occasions of Grace, p. 6
And the word became flesh and dwelt among us.
~ John 1:14
