At Christmas, Mary is the center of our Nativities and we remember this young girl who became the mother of God. But do we really consider what her “Let it be” means for us? How her trust and her faith are models for us. If she could do it, so can we.

From Mary

By Kathy Lowe Hart

“Really, God? You chose me?
But why?
I’m ordinary, young, uneducated,
Not married.
Why me for such a task?”

Then comes understanding.
Not the answer to WHY, but just THE answer:
“I am not alone in this,
And nothing is impossible with God.”

At worst, it’s terrifying,
At best, sobering……...
And eventually joy-filled
To be selected for God’s service.

We are all Mary.
Accept being chosen,
For nothing is impossible with God.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 a.m. as we gather this 3rd Sunday of Advent – the Joy Sunday – to praise, to wait, to hope and to rejoice that Jesus is coming.

Grace be with you,
