Dec 24 – The Magi


a yes-quest

begins when

you decide to go.

It continues

until you find it:

a place, person,


like a longing,

or a hope

that’s filling

up your heart.


It will turn out


than you imagine:

gifts will be given

rather than got.

And the journey

will be extraordinary

if you wisely

let yourself

be led.

Note: This Advent series is using The Jesse Tree, a liturgical ‘tool’ to help guide and direct spiritual reflection.  Each day leading up to Advent, we  consider one Bible story, or character, beginning from creation, following chronologically (more or less) right up until the birth of Jesus. It’s a way to review the wide sweep of God’s pursuit of humankind across history.
