Advent 3

December 17, 2012 § Leave a comment

The third candle of advent is the candle of joy. A difficult one in light of this week’s events. One of the best things about joy, though, is that it dwells deep, and might be found even beneath all our other emotions, waiting until we are ready to again reach for it and claim it and stand for it. Joy. Christmas reminds us of this powerful gift, and how often it is a response to, and a product of, great love.

Romans 8: 37-39
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
