“Joy to the World…”
“…tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy…”
“How great our joy…JOY JOY JOY!”
Expectations of joy are everywhere right now. Sometimes life, even in this season, doesn’t live up to the expectations and hype of Christmas. I love our Longest Night service because it makes room for that reality.
I’m out of words for today. But these ancient words abide:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. John 1:1-5
