 Imagining the Lectionary: Berry-bright promises (Advent 4A)

Reflection accompanying image Red berries covered in frost

God's promises are berry-bright with hope. So when life events freeze expectation and cruel circumstances chill to the bone, the promise-laded seeds of love hang close by, abundant in grace, wrapped in vibrant fleshed out blessing.  The prophets knew this to be true. Always and everywhere promise and presence waited the thaw of reborn trust and renewed faith. Time and time again the startling words and actions of these visionary men and women drew attention to this berry-bright fact of God's reality.
