Emmanuel – A Reflection

December 19, 2019

We draw closer to the final Sunday of Advent

In the midst of the hurry and scurry we wait

Spirit speaks to us in subtle ways

Sister Deer pauses as I wait for her to cross the street

Our eyes meet and we communicate

Be Still she says, Be Still

So many people get impatient with our wild neighbors

Yet if we but slow down and spend some time in their presence

Emmanuel, God with Us

Not only in the one we call Christ

Also in the ones whom the Creator shares with us

Christ with us, God with us, Spirit with us

The indigenous people saw the Creator in all things

Can we perhaps see Emmanuel in all things?

Creator, Christ, and Spirit

Guide us through these final days of Advent

May we see you in the face of everyone we meet

May we see you in the wonder of your Creation

Help us to Be Still and know

Help us to Be Still

Help us to Be
