Advent – Week 3 (12.10.23)

As we considered last week, it is possible for joy to surprise us and show up at any moment, in any circumstance.

This week, Elliott shares the story of the days following John the Baptist’s birth – a story in which Zachariah’s muteness ends and he breaks into a song of sorts — a blessing for the world and for his son.

In this story, awe and wonder are prevalent. In fact, they are prevalent in all of the stories surrounding Jesus’ birth. What do we make of this? Is there a connection between awe and joy? And is it possible to cultivate awe in our everyday lives?
