How are you sharing the good news of Emmanuel: God with us this weekend?
Will you be preaching to congregations inflated by visitors or will you be feeding those on the margins?
Have your Advent preparations built up to this proclamation or will you be relieved to emerge from chaos into Christmas eve and morning?
How much has still to be written and delivered before you can worship at the manger or are you already on your knees?
We can help each other with the final touches or with the beginning of the story as we celebrate that God thought we were worth coming to earth for.
Thoughts on the RCL Advent 4 and RCL Christmas and for the NL appear in posts from earlier in the week.
You may have other traditions for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We’d love to hear about them.
Please share what you’re up to, how you’re doing and what you need as we encourage each other in this final push to celebrate the Incarnation. And, if you still have the energy, tell us how you will recover and continue the work of Christmas begun in the manger in Bethlehem.
May we, who attempt to make Christmas just right for others, know God right beside us and may we approach with joy and wonder God born for us.
