Thought for the Day: These words are part of today’s worship service. They present an almost mythical vision of some world unrecognizable for those of us who live in this current world. It appears so far-fetched that the scriptural image is pushed off and assumed to be otherworldly. Maybe that is part of our problem. Just because something is so wildly and radically different, why do we assume it belongs to another realm. Advent is the time when the church hunkers down and recommits itself to otherworldly living in the only world we have been given. The scriptures don’t depict an amazing world, and then tell folks to wait until they die. Just the opposite. We are told to make it so before we die.
Prayer: This is an amazing time of the year, and the message is equally amazing. In word and action, O Lord, empower us to live the amazing life you believe we are capable of living. Amen.
