Advent begins today, the time of preparation and anticipation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

The call from the manger is a call to service.  We like to think of the story and how all is tucked away in a manger under the starry skies with angels proclaiming a miracle…and that is true.  But the reality is the call that comes from the manger is a call to live out the difficult demands of Jesus.

We are called to go the second mile, to give our shirt as well as our coat, to offer a drink of cool water, and to give our socks as well as our shoes.

Peace

Jim
