Notices for Week of December 24, 2017

Christmas 4
Notices: Christmas 2017
Whatever is going on around this very complex and wounded world, in our own woundedness, in our own daily hectic living, it can seem like there is no room in the inn. It seems like we are too closed up, to filled up with complexity.
As true as that is, God comes anyway.
Christmas is about the wakening of the birthing of God in the simplicity of our hearts, in the depths of our lives and in the complexities of what our lives bring.
At the parish of the Resurrection, we are a school of love, where we are seeking and learning together how to make more room in our spiritual inns – room for God who is Love to be birthed in our lives, room to love, to be present to, and to care for others.
Merry Christmas!
