With rich language and images, we are invited to move into a celebration of the coming of God’s righteousness – glimpsed in these days after Christmas Day in an innocent child born in a context of simplicity and shared humanity, as well as oppressive powers that seek to squelch all of it. Against that and all oppression, the new reality of righteousness is proclaimed without wavering. The vindication and restorative action God takes for God’s people is celebrated.
This week, while playing music (perhaps carols or other Christmas music) that speaks to you, stretch, twirl, and dance each and every day – alone and/or with others. In your dance, express the sheer joy you realize because God dwells in and around us with absolute love. In that joyful dance, create and/or mime gestures that convey the justice, peace, and new community that accompanies and actualizes this coming of God’s reign.
