Advent reading thus-far. These are some of my favourite take-aways…….
“Life is about recognizing Christ in all our journeys.” Trystan Owain Hughes
Every year we celebrate the holy season of Advent, O God. Every year we pray those beautiful prayers of longing and waiting, and sing those lovely songs of hope and promise. Karl Rahner
“There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.” Madeleine L’Engle
“… without the incarnation, Christianity isn’t even a very good story, and most sadly, it means nothing. “Be nice to one another” is not a message that can give my life meaning, assure me of love beyond brokenness, and break open the dark doors of death with the key of hope.
The incarnation is an essential part of Jesus-shaped spirituality.” Michael Spencer
“Prayer is a moment of incarnation – God with us. God involved in the details of my life.” Paul Miller
“The Incarnation is the ultimate reason why the service of God cannot be divorced from the service of man.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“Action is always superior to speech in the Gospels, which is why the Word became flesh and not newsprint.” Colin Morris
