So, I haven’t gone to bed yet, so as far as I’m concerned it’s still Christmas Eve 🙂

Brian Draper #Advent20 finishes:

‘Today – of all days! –

I will try not
to wonder what might have been,
had it all gone according to my plans;
nor even what the future holds,
forever just out of my reach.

The wonder is that you reach,
to here, now –

Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace –

and here am I:
one small step,
from darkness into light.”

Ron Glusenkamp:

“Our lives this Advent should be walking thank-you notes to God for the precious Gift of His Son”

with a reminder to regularly focus upon how we are blessed, and take the effort to audibly recognise those around us!

Maggi Dawn encourages us to look back at the promises that Mary was given, and deals with the question as to why we still have poverty etc…

… James takes the same point as James – Justice – and bangs the nail home, saying bluntly that the gospel is neither an abstract faith not a promise of God’s intervention, but a call to practical activism.”

Definitely interested in practical expressions of faith – good to read blogs such as God and Politics… as Pam Webster puts it “to not harbour God’s presence inside ourselves, but to let it pour out.”
