The Life We Hold, The Life We Give Away

It’s nine months to Christmas. As I watch the daffodils come up in the rectory yard, and think about my sermon for the next Sunday in Lent, it’s hard to think about Christmas.

But today is the Annunciation. We remember the moment Mary learned from the angel Gabriel she would have the baby Jesus. It’s our feast for when Gabriel announced what God would do.

At the Eucharist, we proclaim the mystery of faith.
