A Wonder Filled Christmas

Bruce Cockburn’s song, ”Cry of A Tiny Babe” and the book, “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” by Barbara Robinson are two of my favorite Christmas traditions. The words of the song and book translate the meaning of John 3:16 -18 (NKJV) for me in the everyday reality of our world...

What is it about waking up early to see that snow has fallen while you were sleeping?   As I stand on the porch, I don’t hear anything.   Just a calm quietness.  All around are fresh patches of snow that haven’t been disturbed by any critters, neither the two footed nor four footed kind.  The white is so bright that even in the early hours, the darkness seems to evaporate.  The cold is beginning to seep in, but I remain outside feeling no motivation to begin my day scurrying from this activity to the next.  I’d rather just stand and enjoy because……it’s just so...

Sunday mornings are beautiful, mostly. Sometimes they are chaotic; getting six people out the door simultaneously, in a timely manner, with shoes and coats on is not for the faint of heart!  Sometimes they go smoothly and sometimes we ask if it’s worth it! But when I walk in the door to the Church I KNOW that it is. Every time. Sometimes I...

HOPE is one of those familiar words that seems to get lost in our everyday speech. It gets mixed in as we flow from one thought to another. Or it gets used casually as we express well-wishes or concern:

I HOPE you feel better soon…

I HOPE I’m not disturbing you…

(or as parents frequently hear themselves saying)

I HOPE you weren’t about to do that thing I just told you not to do…

Pastor and author Paul Tripp describes in his advent devotional Come Let Us Adore Him that there is a “danger of familiarity” in the lives of the children of God. He describes how it “does bad things to us” such as robbing us of wonder and causing us not...
