“In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
What came to be through him was life,
and this life was the light of the human race;
the light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.” – John 1. 1 – 5
Merry Christmas. And thank you for accompanying me on this Advent Journey. I trust you have been blessed through my words and sharing.
I just returned from a walk at dusk. The woods were silent, muffled by the fresh snow. I looked westward and delighted in the subtle ruby-red fading through the forest. I gave thanks in my heart for what has been shared and discovered.
May our Advent preparations bear deep fruit through our silent listening during the next 13 days of Christmas. Let us see what emerges at Epiphany, January 6th.
Only Love, In Christ,
Peter Traben Haas
