Dec 20, 2020

The narrative of our lives is woven into God’s holy narrative. As people of God, I hope that we articulate our story in terms of God’s salvation story. This is the time of the year that we start to reflect on the year, and in the midst of creative dumpster fire ornaments commemorating 2020 you might be hanging on your Christmas tree, I invite to also reflect on the liturgical year and entering the Story.  Entering the Story, God’s story means recognizing that there are moments in our lives — even this year— that are Epiphany and Lent, Holy Week (that one is long) and Easter, Pentecost and Christmas, Advent and Annunciation. We find ourselves and our story woven into the sacred Story....

At some moment or another, we feel seemingly valueless in the eyes of the world. Like we do not matter, or are acceptable losses or expendable, or not worth another liberty of convenience. And in those moments, God’s grace is within us. God message, God’s annunciation is the conception of grace, the implanting and multiplying, and moving, and growing of grace within us so that it can be born out into the world. Beloved, we have a God who lifts up the lowly, and fills the empty and annunciates to those who feel valueless that in God’s eyes they are favored ones. I hope that in your life, in your story, you have you seen moments of annunciation.
