God has a way of showing up when we least expect it. New life can break in while we’re busy making other plans. Love and mercy appears whne we may not be prepared to receive those gifts. In our busyness and distraction, we not only miss the good things around us, but can also grow dull to the voices along the borders of life, crying out for help, care, and justice. Throughout scripture, we are urged to stay awake or to wake up! In this beautiful, often complicated, and holy season of Advent and Christmas, the nudge will be to “awaken” to the life in and around you. What is being offered? What is being asked of you? Where is God appearing to bring hope, peace, joy, and love? Join us for the journey.
