The Rev. Casey dunsworth

serves as Associate Campus Pastor to the Belfry, the Lutheran-Episcopal Campus Ministry to UC Davis

and as Program Director for LEVN, the Lutheran Episcopal Volunteer Network.

A blessing.

This is a vision of the way it can be, the way it should be: shouts of welcome, a joyful procession, a community celebrating together.

The same vision is offered to us today: we can welcome Christ into our lives; we can celebrate God's transformational power.

How swiftly things changed back then; how swiftly we, too, can be distracted.

May we hold fast to this vision of goodness: peace from the practice of justice, equality from the practice of respect.

As this week unfolds, we will let ourselves be overtaken by God's love. We will pour it back out into the world.

The blessed, holy Trinity keep you in grace, lead you in light, and +give you peace.

Amen.

Christmas in...April?

Amen.
