For many years since we moved here, we have participated in Salvation Army Angels. This year I am grateful that with all that is different, this tradition is a constant. I was overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude when I opened the online sign up for this year and found that so many names were already claimed.

 

 

Each year I gain a renewed perspective as we begin the holiday season by Christmas shopping for this child first. When I consider this ritual, I am reminded of this passage from Paul's letter to the Corinthians. Even though we will not have a chance to see this little boy open his gifts on Christmas, we have sent a Gospel message to him through our actions.

 

You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
(2 Corinthians 3:2-3)

 

God speaks through us to others. God is still speaking if we are open to listen. There are messages to be heard, comfort to be received, strength to be gained, and hope to be given. There are mysteries that God wants to reveal to us. God speaks with a quiet and simple word. God who reigns is still speaking. Be still today, and listen.

 

May you find ways to be still and listen, so that you can share the message of Christ written on your heart.

 

Prayer for Today

Speak, O Lord. Create a stillness in me, that I may hear and understand your voice. Amen.
