In an environment consumed with money, we have not been baptized into an economy. In a culture absorbed by political identity, we have not been baptized into a political party. In a world that has been threatened at times by radicalized nationalism, we have not been baptized as Americans.
Our faith cannot disappear with the Christmas ornaments and decorations.
Today, we honor the Wise Men who followed a star.
This Christmas, we can choose to stay unhappy and miserable because of life’s disappointments and uncertainties. But we do have another choice.
This gift of peace is not a dream, removed idealism, escapism, or wishful thinking. The peace of God, which is beyond all understanding, is more real and tangible than anything else in this world.
The Church is overflowing in ideas on how each of us can deepen in our relationship with Jesus Christ.
How can believers both recall a historical event, while also prepare for a future event, in which time and space as we know them will end? Is there a middle ground or a still point between the two?
God is our everything, and if this is not acknowledged, and it doesn’t lead us to worship, then we pursue other things that can never truly satisfy or hearts.
