Today’s gospel reading is a repeat of the Christmas morning gospel – one of my favourites so I am happy that it is here again for the last day of 2021. You can read the scriptures for today at this link.
It’s easy to make the mistake of seeing life as a treadmill, day after day ups and downs, a movement through time from youth to old age, then death and beyond.
Too often if feels as if we are helplessly captive carried along by the momentum of all that is expected of us and demanded from us, and we risk falling into an existence mode, a daily rhythm of survival, enduring, coping and so the treadmill rolls on.
Grace and truth dwells among us…what a perfect ‘bridge’ to carry us over from this year into next.
Thank you for this nuanced reading of the Word today.
