December 18- December 25
During Jesus’s life, he not only teaches how to love others, but teaches us to love ourselves. Christ’s tenderness welcomes us into a safe place where our deepest fears, vulnerabilities, and anxieties can be healed. We are loved so deeply and irrevocably that nothing in our minds or pasts can separate us from Him. As we look forward to the incarnation, may we feel love sink into the depths of our wounds and pain. May it stretch our hearts and our minds so we experience more deeply our identity as the beloved children of God.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! For behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord!”
