“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
-John 1:14

A Time to Think… “Into this world, this demented inn in which there is absolutely no room for him at all, Christ comes uninvited.” ―Thomas Merton, American Trappist monk, writer, theologian, mystic, poet, social activist and scholar

A Time to Act… What room are you making in your heart, mind and soul for the Christ Child this year? Have you thought of Him, or are you distracted by presents, decorating, family, meals, travel—all the stuffing of the world’s ideas? Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you through and through with peace so you can long for the joy of the season instead of the disguise of the season the world offers.

 A Time to Pray… Lord Almighty, who created this universe and all things, turn my attention to YOU this season. Direct my thoughts to the hope, joy, love and peace that only YOU can give. Fill me with joyful anticipation for all that comes with Christmas and open my heart to receive your gift once again, not as tradition, but as my Savior and Lord, AMEN.
