The eighth day

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         
A blessed eighth day of Christmas to you,
the eighth day of Creation.
God is not a retired Creator, you know:
God is still active, still creating.
The Holy One breathes you into being
with each breath, creates you new.
You start today.
All your sins and shortcomings are forgiven,
all your accomplishments
are now simply part of your new story.

God is incarnate in the world,
grace emerging as flesh.
Are you a spiritual being
now entering the physical world…
or a physical being entering the spiritual?

The new year
will bring you abundant grace.
Trust it.

Enter,
you and all the world.
Begin now.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
