Christmas Has Come

It’s cold and blustery outside. Many are hurting or lonely. Some are weary of everything. There’s the friend who couldn’t get home for Christmas and the one who feels disconnected from their family. There’s the pastor who can’t find the words to finish the sermon and the musicians who can’t sing another joy to the world.

There is also deep joy and the light that hits the snow just right. There’s children’s laughter and neighbors sharing cookies and treats. There’s a phone call from family and neighbors saying hello. There’s a single candle and the tune of Silent Night.

However you feel and whatever the year has held, Christmas has come. Love comes down as it does time and time again. And it’s here for all of us. Thanks be to God.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
