Rob’s Reflections

 

I have heard many variations of this phrase over the years. “Life is a series of events that are either painful or joyful, interrupted by plateaus of the common.” I suppose that on a very simplistic level this is true. But, mostly it’s a stripped-down version of what is really true.  Even the common can be very good if we tend to our spiritual life as much as we do to our physical life. For instance, what if we bought into the notion that Christmas is just too big to waste. What I mean by this is that we do this big runup to Christmas; carols, shopping, church, the Christmas story in many forms, giving and receiving gifts, then the baby comes, we celebrate and then we are off to a new year, with its hopes for a better life than the one we leave behind. What if we continued our joy at the Christmas season well into the next year?  This would mean we could continue to enjoy the carols. We could continue in an attitude of giving.  We could worship the baby Jesus all year round.

 

     I know people who do just this. They make a commitment to bring the holiday season into the next year, and hope that their thoughts, prayers and actions are influenced in their worship of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I will be endeavoring to take this attitude into 2023. This next year doesn’t have to be common at all. For it is true: Christmas is just too big to waste.

 

      See you at church.
