Do you ever ask…Why God? or Where are you God?
“If Christ cannot be incarnated into our real world and into our real families and all the hurts they know so well, then Hallmark wins and the whole season is a faux bright spot in the midst of the surrounding darkness. Then Advent/Christmas is a season that comes and goes but without much lasting effect on anyone.” Scott Hoezee--Center for Excellence in Preaching
“It gets darker and darker and darker; and then Jesus is born.” —Wendell Berry
It is in the midst of suffering, in the midst of asking, Where are you God? And Why? That we cling to the one who enters in the darkness. The One who enters our darkness.
We call him the Prince of Peace.
