At this time of preparing for Christmas, we are invited to focus on the miracle of birthing the Christ Child within us. The awareness of the impending arrival of this brand new state of consciousness can bring us great comfort and joy. It can also lift our thoughts and feelings above the “overwhelm” that threatens to engulf us as Christmas Day nears and our TO DO lists lengthen. We can be saved much wear and tear if we experience the joy that comes from remembering that the Christ is already present within us — we just await its fuller expression.
Rev. Jean DeBarbieris
