We celebrate the 4th Sunday of Advent on December 23rd with a reading of Mary traveling across the desert to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Can you imagine your reaction if your fifteen year old cousin came to you and said, “Oh, by the way, I’m having a baby. And God’s the father.”
But Mary visiting Elizabeth? An Angel Gabriel? We almost take the news casually. Oh, yes. It’s Christmas.
Indeed it is.
We’ll be celebrating Christmas on Tuesday morning, the 25th, at 10:30 a.m. in the Charles Fillmore Chapel. We hope you are able to join us.
Merry Christmas! May your year be filled with peace.
