In my reading today I came across this quote from William Sloan Coffin. While probably not written for Advent, it carries an Advent message.
“Jesus is both mirror to our humanity and a window to divinity, a window revealing as much of God as any mortal eyes can see. When Christians see Christ empowering the weak, scorning the powerful, healing the wounded, and judging their tormentors, we are seeing transparently the power of God at work. What is finally important is not that Christ is God-like, but that God is Christ-like.”
Maybe what all that means is as I/we do our best to be Christ-like, then maybe I/we will begin to recognize the Holy within us and among us.
