Springtime is a great reminder of God's faithfulness to his creation.
Preparing for God's new creation starts with loving God's creation as we know it.
God sees and responds to the injustices in our world.
A good shepherd in dangerous times.
Even if we’re not called to give birth to the Messiah, we are called to mimic Mary’s process. We’re called to waiting, to certainty of the good to come, to expectancy, and to preparation for the now-not-yet’s full arrival.
Even where evil is present, the pervasive presence of God is more powerful. There is nowhere the sheep can go where the shepherd does not go with them. The shepherd’s presence brings peace in the presence of evil.
