Thrusday, December 17—A 2020 Winter Devotional

“For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.” Isaiah 61:11

“Advent is a time focused upon what is at first small, only barely seen and felt; the faint quivering of conscience, the penitential beginning of salvation, flickering light in the darkness, the birth of a child, quiet love within loud hate.” Joshua J. Whitfield

Give us your flickering light in this winter darkness, O God of quiet love within loud hate. Amen.
