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."
