Thanks so much for your blog and for being real about your life and faith! I bumped into your blog on another blog and have been back often since. I have linked your blog from mine too.

Blessings to you this Christmas season.

Thanks for this, I found this really helpful. I hope you might be OK for us to use your thought 2) this morning in mayBe's Eucharist outside on the meadow? I'll send you a copy of the liturgy, and let you know how it goes. Peace Ianx

Managed to get to Oxford for mayBe's open air eucharist today. Very struck by your Advent 3 thoughts - powerful and provoking. Many thanks.

Thanks to all of you. I wish I could have been present with MayBe today, an open air eucharist sounds refreshing. I'm continually amazed at the connections I make with people through the web...God is at work..even electronically!
Blessings of Advent,
Nadia

Nadia - there is a third distinct possibility.

What if we are both wheat and chaff (saint and sinner)? Wouldn't this mean Jesus comes to us in our complacency, turns our world upside down, burns away those parts of us that need to be purged and restores those parts that are Godwardly directed?

Just thought I would offer an unsolicited take.

LP,
That's what I was trying to get to but didn't quite get there. Thanks for articulating it ... I err a bit too much on the sinner side and fail to focus on the saint. It's hard to preach gospel isn't it? Law really is an easier topic, even for us Lutherans who are supposedly all about the grace.

oops...I see where you said that. I promise you this: no more comments until after the second cup of coffee.

thank you, yet again, nadia.

peace and joy be yours this christmas, and grace the year to come...
