Advent 2018

Your Bethlehem…

The lyrics of a song sung in worship drift over and over in my mind.

I’ll make my heart Your Bethlehem
Where You O Lord can enter in
Shine Your light
Let Your life in me begin
And make my heart your Bethlehem.

This is my call to Advent. What does it look like? What should I do? How does one make a heart Bethlehem?

I won’t pretend to have the answers. There’s no outline of blog posts for the next twenty-one days. Just a longing for more Light and Life.

All trips begin with a starting point, and so it is with Advent too. Maybe you’ll journey with me to see where this all goes. Though I don’t know how I’ll get there, I do know what’s waiting at the end.

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who lived in a land of deep shadows— light! sunbursts of light! You repopulated the nation, you expanded its joy. Oh, they’re so glad in your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings. For a child has been born—for us! the gift of a son—for us!—Isaiah 9 The Message
