The world is full of wickedness with an abundance of grace to pave the way toward a future where love, justice and mercy reign.
The reign of the Divine on earth is seen in the story of the One who was sent to show us our humanity. In the suffering babe born humbly to wander, experience hunger and to be abandoned.
Let us be reminded this season to let go of the clutter of our minds, schedules and possessions to make room for the Divine already among us in those who are suffering.
May our hearts be prepared and filled with the hope for our neighbors in need of clothing, shelter and healing.
