Honest Christianity – coming, ready or not

25 December

I am not sure where I heard this reference to the children’s game hide and seek and the connection to advent and Christmas but I do recall thinking how clever and insightful it was. It’s a fun and sobering way to come out of advent, with Christmas a few days away, to move from waiting and preparing for the coming of Jesus to his birth being upon us.

Christmas day will arrive on Thursday whether or not we have done all our shopping, wrapping, cooking etc. Is this not how it should be? Because we know when Christmas day will happen it can lull us into a complacency of thinking we know what will happen when and we forget the uncertainty of what this might mean for us the day and year after…

Coming and staying, being and doing, ready or not…
