We are called to ponder mystery and await the coming Christ, to embody God’s compassion for each fragile human life. God is with us in our longing to bring healing to the earth, while we watch with joy and wonder for the promised Savior’s birth.
(Unexpected and Mysterious, ELW #258 v.3)
Through our Advent waiting to our Christmas jubilation, may we, indeed, embody God’s compassion for each fragile human life and healing to this earth that we call home.
We wish each of you a blessed Christmas and a new year filled with hope.
The ELCA Worship staff
