Sitting and stitching has allowed me some time to work on my sermon for Sunday, reflecting on peace. I am going to talk about the paradoxes of the season - the one presented by commercialism and advertisers and the one of the church who is celebrating Advent. Advent is a time to pause and intentionally reflect and prepare for the coming of Christ. When you put the two alongside one another, I think I prefer the depth offered by Advent over any mall. Though I do have to get my act together and go to the mall to pick up a few little things to go into a present to be mailed.
In the meantime, back to the sewing machine. I have a few hours before the husband will need my help to put up the Christmas lights.
