Advent, Day 7

You hollow us out, God,
so that we may carry you,
and you endlessly fill us
only to be emptied again.

Make smooth our inward spaces
and sturdy,
that we may hold you
with less resistance
and bear you
with deeper grace.

Words: from Night Visions: Searching the Shadows of Advent and Christmas by Jan L. Richardson (Cleveland: United Church Press, 1998)

I read Jan Richardson's book on Advent and Christmas every year. Thanks for these Advent meditations.
