Thought for the Day: Have you ever felt like you were doing some new thing that was in fact very old? The word radical, which is often thought of as something completely out of the norm, is related to the word radish. It means root, and so this new radical thing that is often being done is in fact getting to the “root,” going back to where things started. Too often we get so far astray that we lose sight of where we started. And any attempt to return appears revolutionary, even outlandish. The Prophet Micah is suggesting something new is about ready to emerge that is rooted in what is very old. May our Christmas experience be a splendid rebirth of love that is never far from the love that has existed in creation from the very beginning.
Prayer: You are about ready to do a new thing. Give us eyes to perceive it, Merciful Creator. We trust that your new thing is never detached from what you have always been doing in and among us. Amen.
