Into the Heart of Everything

Doing some work tonight on tomorrow's Christmas Eve meditation.  Lots to think about.  And I love preaching this time of year!  Call me crazy.  I just can't get enough of Christmas.

Here are a couple of lines I'm thinking about, written by Avery Dulles in the 20th century:

"For the Christian, just as for everyone else, there will be cold, lonely seasons, seasons of sickness, seasons of frustration, and a season within which we will die.  Christmas does not give us a ladder to climb out of the human condition.  It gives us a drill that lets us burrow into THE HEART OF EVERYTHING THAT IS and, there, find it shimmering with divinity."

I can live with that!  Merry Christmas!
