Tonight, the third of our Advent meditations was based on the Shepherds.
You can read it below and hear it here.
can you imagine
for a little while
what is was like for the shepherds?
They were outcasts
not merely living on the edge of the city
but totally outside the protection of its walls
no one wanted to be near the shepherds
Have you ever felt
hear the words of God:
‘I am bringing YOU yes you
you sat there
you thinking you are worthless, ignored, alone
I am bringing you good news of great joy’
How does knowing that God comes to you
that God searches you out
make you feel?
When you get that good news of great joy
what would be your response?
would you run home and share it with those close?
would you keep it to yourself?
would you tell everybody you could find?
What would that good news of great joy look like for you today
Spend some time now
talking to God about what that would look like
tonight …. how do you respond to what you have heard?
