Advent 2013

Preparing

This is the season of Advent — a season of preparation and anticipation, marking the time before the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem.  The birth of Jesus, in a stable full of animals and stink and hay, is a bit like his coming in to our hearts, really. When he comes to call, we might give him the brush off or begrudgingly give him a corner.  Even those who’ve welcomed him in to their lives may think, ah, Advent — not sure I really have time to think about that!

I will be reflecting here on making space for him, this process of making room for the Christ child.  Come, Lord. Come.  O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!
