I’ve been so encouraged and surprised by the amount of creativity that’s been going on in our blog from poems to photographs to stories about family and life. In this third week of advent, the week of joy, we remember the way God reflects in our lives; the way the Holy Spirit empowers us to reflect God. So as we say to each other, Rejoice, and again, we say rejoice, let us use the gifts we’ve been given to wonder at the coming King. As Lewis Hyde puts it in his book, The Gift, “What is good, is given back.”
Rejoice, and again I say, Rejoice.
