“Social distancing” has become a term, and way of life, that we’ve become far too comfortable with in the last year. In addition to having to stay distant from those outside our social bubble, many of us feel distant from God. The weight of 2020 has been crushing, including crushing our souls. While this feeling of distance from God may be new to some of us, it’s a common feeling in many. In fact, it’s a reality for all of us until God takes the initiative to come near to us.
The most profound and inspiring approach of God wasn’t visiting Abraham or meeting Moses on Mt. Sinai; it wasn’t the visions of Daniel or John on the Isle of Patmos, either.
It was when God squeezed Himself into the body of an infant. When the second person of the Trinity, God the Son – Jesus – was born of the Virgin Mary. This was when God has come nearest.
Join us this Christmas season as we shake off the effects of “social distancing,” knowing God has come near and He is reaching out to us even today.
