Say “Yes” to the Mess

As we kick off Advent 2020 today, I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to retell an old story in a new way that was published in this month’s edition of Christ is Our Hope Magazine.

I invite you to join me this Advent in saying “Yes” to the Mess and finding Love Incarnate present even in the most challenging of circumstances.

For those who might wonder when you read my transparent remarks regarding my daughter, she has given me full permission to write about her struggles. It is her hope to bring awareness and acceptance to those who suffer from Mental Health issues. ❤

Say “Yes” to the Mess as published in Christ is Our Hope Magazine, December 2020:

Please note: At the time of this post it seems the online version of the article is missing a quote following Paragraph 5, which may be attributed to Fr. Richard Rohr. It reads:

Advent is not about a sentimental waiting for the Baby Jesus. Advent is a time to focus our expectation and anticipation on ‘the adult Christ, the Cosmic Christ’ who challenges us to empty ourselves, to lose ourselves and to surrender.”

    Such a beautiful story! It reminded me of moments in my life when I was not mindful enough to give it over to God. This was an excellent reminder, especially during a pandemic. Thank you!
