Advent Devotional • December 25

Wednesday, December 25
Written by Rev. Raygan Baker
First Congregational Church of Fresno
John 1:1-14

I have refused to live
locked in the orderly house of
reasons and proofs.
The world I live in and believe in
is wider than that. And anyway,
what’s wrong with Maybe?
You wouldn’t believe what once or
twice I have seen. I’ll just
tell you this:
only if there are angels in your head will you
ever, possibly, see one.

Mary Oliver

The creative word of God took on our flesh, and revealed to us what it might look like for we mere humans to more fully participate in the Divine, even with our own flesh. The re-creation of humanity in the body of Jesus Christ is a new invitation into our truest, most free and authentic selves within the creativity of God. A new way of life is still being birthed today. Today, sit with the wonder and mystery. There is no need for certainty today. In fact, we may discover so much more if we do not resist that
uncertainty.

Enjoy this blessing today,
Pastor Raygan
