As I examine our society, I sometimes think that justice is just a game to our leaders. Even some of our religious leaders seem to be toxic when it comes to justice. All of this selective justice should shame us. But today there is a presence on our lives that presents us with justice with a kind and loving hand. During this holy time of Advent, we bring peace and justice for all. During this beloved season, all religions join in the celebration of rebirth and promise, love, and justice.
The birth of Jesus binds us God’s holy creation, the one bringing us the Divine connecting us for eternity. The tender Mercy and Love graciously given by God brings us a new dawn each day bringing light to all in darkness. God cares for you; God cares for me. When we share God’s Grace and Justice, we shine a light on all humanity.
