Countdown to Christmas — 12.22.16

December 22, 2016

[NOTE: This is the fourth in a series. We’ve been thinking together about some excerpts and highlights from a piece written by Stephanie Paulsell. If you missed parts 1 through 3, scroll down and treat yourself.]

“Advent calls us to prepare a way within us and in the world around us to receive the Christ-child,” Ms. Paulsell writes.

Godspell begins with the sound of the ram’s horn trumpeting the introduction to the song, Prepare Ye the Way of The Lord. Isaiah 40:3 and Mark 1:3 were the sources for those lyrics.

Stephanie Paulsell brings that invitation from those long ago Scriptures and that 20th century musical into our hearts, our minds, and our lives today: “Advent calls us to prepare a way within us and in the world around us to receive the Christ-child.”

What does mean for you these next couple of days between now and Christmas?

I’d love to hear from you, as always, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
