As we draw ever closer to Christmas and the celebration of God’s great gift to us in His coming to live among us, I wonder who will we, who will I, be a blessing to this year. Will our community be blessed by our sharing of the news of God’s great love? Will our gifts be gifts of service and reaching out just as our God has reached out to us? Will our families and family life be enriched by the love of Jesus shining through each one of us into their lives? Will our arms of love seek to reach out to the poor and disadvantaged in our community? Will our prayers and material gifts of aid seek to alleviate the desperate pain of many in our world? Will our voices be heard in proclaiming good
news to the poor, freedom for captives and welcome for the stranger?
Just a few thoughts and the meanderings of this mind as we again approach the Christmas season this year.
