From the Super .................. Advent 2017


As we turn to Advent we recall Luke's account of the shepherds hurrying to Bethlehem after the amazing experience of a vision of angels. Their ordinary night shift in the fields has been interrupted by the experience they can't explain. We're told in Luke’s gospel that they are terrified, but that after they have taken in the enormity of what they are experiencing, they ‘went with haste’ to find the child.


What is there that makes us stop....       

and then act decisively?

 

It may be the retelling of a story we thought familiar.

It may be something that happens, to our neighbours, our world, or us.

We are brought up short by the wonder/horror of it all.

But that is not where it ends.


There is so much to which we need to respond that it is easy, as a result, to be overwhelmed and do nothing.


But we are in this story. Stop. Respond.


For it is to the lives of our neighbours, our world, and us that the promiseof peace is given. Go and greet the Prince of Peace and tell His story to those you meet.


Yours in His Service


Mike
