Mother Katherine’s sermon preached Jan. 10, 2021

That Gospel speaks of grace and blessing today and comes on the heels of a week of pandemic, shock, fear, violence, and the leaders involved. A week which has perhaps redefined our country. Or maybe it has simply revealed that we are what we’ve tried to pretend is not who we are. To ignore the presence of racism, bigotry, hatred, is to thwart the very awareness which might eventually help us not to be what this week reveals of us.

A few weeks ago I came across a scrap of paper in a book once belonging to my mother. Seeing her handwriting made me ache with missing her right alongside my unexpected joy at glimpsing it again. It said, Christmas began in the heart of God. It is complete only when it reaches the heart of man. (And woman!) God acts, and we must do our part too. This night’s arrival reminds us that to receive we must open our hearts to this Christ who comes.
