Rev. Lane Denson Meditation
|THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20 , 2012|
It is ours, in our own way, to magnify the Lord, to rejoice in God. It is our calling to show God’s strength. It is our ministry to scatter the proud in their very heart of hearts. It is our responsibility and, indeed, our privilege to put down the mighty from their thrones and exalt those below; to fill the hungry and to empty the rich. In a very real way, this is what we call our Baptismal Covenant. When we take up that vocational commission to give birth to this Christmas Jesus, we are asked to respond ever so much as did Mary: “Yes. Let it be to me according to your word.” We enter now into a season marked by great expectations. These hopes are of the ways in which the joys of Christmas are informed, given shape and expression to become flesh. Rejoice.
Almighty God you have so imagined us into being human as you wish and called us to a daily new beginning. Grant us your grace that we may likewise imagine your will and walk this new adventure with prayer in your name. Amen.
The Re. Lane Denson (BD 1954)
