This is wisdom from St. Bonaventure, Italian medieval Franciscan friar who died in 1221. To me it is perfectly attuned theology for a God who is ever-nearer and ever-greater at the same time and always.
If love is the gravity of the soul, then hope is its wings, and faith is its practice.
David Wilcox, 58, is a contemporary American folk singer and song writer captures this spirit. These lyrics are from his song “Show The Way.”
As the psalmist prays, so we sing: Shiru l’Adonai, shir chadash. Sing to the Lord a new song. It is time to sing many new songs, fresh songs, new words and new connections.
Merry Christmas to everyone. We hallow a tiny babe in a humble manger and call this God. What could more insane? What could more true? What could be more Eternal? What more holy?
|May the Love of Christmas bless and keep you now and always.|
