It’s that time of the year again! So we thought we’d offer up a Christmas themed Devotional for you all. Brad Jersak talks a bit about how the Nativity is understood in the Eastern Church, we reflect on the feminine in the salvation story, and Danielle Wilson shares reflections on her time spent in a refugee camp in Greece. And of course, all this is woven together with music and song by David Blower.

    Deeply moved a chalenged by this : it’s made me uncomfortable as the real message should. The profound simplicity and way the message of scripture, refugee camp, right now stories and a beautiful reimagining of in the bleak midwinter have been segwayed together have made me think, give and turned me tender again to just keep going keep holding on , keep hoping giving and believing. Bad things don’t reveal a cruel God, but hide us from a God of love, that God is with us in the pain , he is in the face of the screaming child. “ beautiful and terrible things happen Don’t be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It’s for you I created the universe. I love you. There’s only one catch. Like any other gift, the gift of grace can be yours only if you’ll reach out and take it. Maybe being able to reach out and take it is a gift too.”
