The Christmas Story in Music, Readings and Reflections
Date: December 15, 2019
This week we will hear some special music while we reflect on the story of the angel Gabriel’s visit to a young girl named Mary and the story of Mary and a family member, Elizabeth. These are stories that are rich with dramatic and mysterious themes that inspire wonder, awe, gratitude and a call to renewed faith and trust in God.
The essence of these stories is God’s deep and abiding love for all people. The love spoken about here, and in many places in Scriptures, is a deep and powerful love which originates in the Spirit of God and that is instilled in ordinary human beings like Mary and Elizabeth.
I Believe…Mary and Elizabeth, two women who assisted in helping God’s dream for the world become reality. What are we doing this day to help the dream be fulfilled?
