The word path in French is chemin, which also means approach. How we approach this Advent season can liberate us from the bondage of our societal prejudices. During Advent, we read our Bibles the enlightening story of the birth of Jesus. What we forget is that His birth is not just for humanity; it is for all of God’s creation.
If we follow the lighted path that Jesus shows us, we are at peace with ourselves and society. We are made in god’s image; therefore, we grow in that image daily. Jesus’s path brings true hope, true peace, and true freedom.
Dear God, may we walk on the way light-filled path shown to us by your Son.
