Friday 16 December
There is a drama series on TV and the first moments of the current episode flashes the highlights of the previous week or weeks; the whys the wherefore, the questions and the cliff-hanger.
Mathew tells his narrative of Jesus’ birth through the prospective of Mary and the placing of her and Joseph’s experiences within a particular place and time in history.
There is weaving and intrigue as any live drama, but God’s hand is seen throughout.
Look again at events of the week – what are the headline for this week’s conversation with God?
As I look at the pattern of the news today, where can I place God in the pattern? In the needs of others? In their joys or success? How about in the justice or injustice a situation? As Jesus broke into human history revealing God’s hand, may I behold him today! Amen
