an advent/Christmas journey
Advent this last year came alive for me in my sermon preparation: a sense of expectation, a call to prepare, an opportunity to seek God's direction and then to accept God's call and purpose for our lives. Christmas is a culmination of this Advent journey requiring us to become accountable as human beings made in God's image, to take up God's purpose for us - as expressed in Genesis 1 - to work alongside him in creating order out of darkness and chaos, and to continually embrace our role in helping constrain chaos in our lives and communities.
