Reflecting on our Christmas Journey
with Mary, Joseph, Jesus and the Magi
As I prepare to welcome Jesus once again this Christmas, I reflect for a few moments on my own journey as I wait for the coming of my Lord. It may be that life has been so frantic recently that my progress on the way has been halted by matters too urgent to leave. Or perhaps my road has felt calm and steady … or in contrast, lonely, slow and arduous. However I have travelled, I try to put aside the hustle and bustle of the world around just for now, and ‘come home’ to myself … and to God.
As I reflect on the journeys of Mary and Joseph, I follow them to Bethlehem … and then back to Nazareth with their precious new baby, the One whom other travellers came to worship.
I spend time with them whenever I can, both in the words of Scripture, and if I so choose, through the evocative lens of three Christian poets.
St Beuno’s Outreach wishes you and all your family peace and joy this Christmas, and many blessings in the New Year.
The next Prego will be for the Baptism of the Lord (7 January 2018)
