Rhythms of Christmas – 1

Luke 1:25-56



various in its existence

temporal in its placement

creator of experience

mover of feelings


It was probably an ordinary day for Mary. She was a faithful happy lady, engaged to be married to a faithful and happy man… life was good.  As she went about her normal daily tasks a visitor arrived  with a message that changed her life…

and ours.

A message that changed the rhythm of her day and sat in motion all sorts of rhythms for her future


of rejection

of hiding

of ridicule

of the harshness of travel

of running for safety

of uncertainty

of joy

of hope

of wonder

of pondering

of value

of feeling blessed.

Unique Rhythms no one else has ever had

but Rhythms that were set in motion by God as she became one of the major themes in His song of redemption.

Rhythms that we still ponder, sing, read and think about today.

What an awesome thought… to have a visitor sent from God, with a message from God

A message that would not only change her very soul…

but has changed ours as well…

for those of us who still believe.
