We are on an ever-so-brief precipice between the fourth week of Advent and Christmas Eve. My home congregation moved Advent back a week, so we observed Advent 4 last week. But many places are observing Advent 4 in the morning and Christmas Eve at night tomorrow.
This is one of my favorite pieces from the collection “Cloth for the Cradle” by the Iona Community. The language dabbles in the approaching Incarnation, with a tone of amazement – not only that this could happen at all, but that it could happen for each one of us.
