Daily Advent Reflection for Dec. 20


There are at least a few of these going around… videos that imagine the Christmas story playing out over today’s social media.  It’s an interesting commentary, of course, on how many of us currently experience and interpet our world through the lens of technology and public performance.  I must say, however, one part of what I find so beautiful about the original Christmas story is its scale–it was all so quiet, so small.  There was no mass communication or instant messaging (unless you count those angels who keep appearing).  All the people involved had to act with a great deal of faith, trust, and courage–with very little information to go on.  Although I’m a fan of technology in many ways, I do wonder if we lack some essential sense of  mystery in our lives.
