Love Up Close

For the past two Christmas seasons, our families and communities have been literally plagued by the COVID-19 pandemic. Celebrations and traditions were interrupted and, for many, were forced online—connected perhaps, yet physically apart.

Is it the same with God, we might wonder? That when God connects with us, it is more like a satellite streaming a Zoom call than the embrace of a family over a meal?

This Advent season, we will be exploring ‘Love Up Close’—the mysterious intimacy of the incarnation. In this familiar Christmas story, we see a picture of God in solidarity with us, where there is no place too distant or lowly or surprising for the divine to draw near. Today, we wait for God once more.
