From Generation to Generation

December 4 – God meets us in our fear
When the angel Gabriel comes to Mary, she is perplexed. Yet the angel’s news is “Do not be afraid.” Do not be afraid. We hear this refrain throughout the Christmas story and it is the most common phrase in the bible. From generation to generation, God shows up in the midst of our fear, uncertainty and confusion. From generation to generation, faithful people have said “yes” despite apprehension. From generation to generation, our ancestors in faith have accepted the invitation. Isaiah pains a vision of what we work toward when we say “yes.” Righteousness and equity reign, peace and harmony, and we pursue this vision to make it real. Isaiah 11: 1-10 and Luke 1:26-38
