Scripture reading

For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given.

–Isaiah 9:6

Thought of the Day

I recently read this quote by the German theologian, Frederick Buechner.

“Once we have seen God in a stable, we can never be sure where God will appear or to what ludicrous depths of self-humiliation He will descend in the wild pursuit of us. If holiness and the awesome power and majesty of God were present in this least auspicious of all events, this birth of a peasant’s child, then there is no place or time so lowly or earthbound but that holiness can be present there too. And this means that there is no place that we can hide from God.”

This my friends is Great News for us all. God is searching for you and for me. It is my hope and prayer that you will allow yourself to be found this holiday season.

Merry Christmas!


Father, Thank you for caring and loving enough to look for me. Amen.
