In this unseasonably warm winter weather, we enjoyed meeting outside at the Christmas Markets for our second Advent Outside service. We reflected on expecting to see God in the world and how that is portrayed in Luke.
Even when Zechariah WAS expecting to see God—he was in the most holy place of the temple, where they believed God lived—he was still terrified!
It was a lively discussion and the Christmas Market was a great place for it. We had a chance to look around and let it sink in that God is in everyone. Everyone we meet. How surprising would it be if we actually looked with God's eyes and did see God in everyone?
