Abiding (December)

Our news is the same old lies. Religions start all wars. Religion poisons everything. Yet every December abiding abides, waits on consciousness.  “And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field…” It concentrates attention to read, in a Christian story, of people who don’t know about Christianity, the full blockbuster series. Scripture moves us to consider shepherds, minding their business, same old job year in, year out: flocks. As though so often the ordinary business of faith hope love is simply to abide. When, wait for it, “And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them.”
