A mystery beyond

All creation is striving to bring forth a mystery beyond itself, 
a kingdom of peace and justice. 
The created world models it, 
the prophets foretell it, 
the psalmist celebrates it, 
and Jesus shows us what it looks like in reality. 
All of these invite us to let God’s kingdom come to birth in our own lives.

  1. REading next year's devotions already?! I am only on about September of Margaret Silf's 2011 Book of Grace filled days on the Kindle - (great for highlighting all those nuggests of wisdom)
    Had both the Children's NAtivity and the Blue Christmas service today and both give very different but equally valid insights into the mystery and wonder of God's presence with us.
