As busy as this week may be, with traveling or time with family and friends, or as quiet as it may be, depending on where you are in life right now, take some time to consider that as we worship a God who is turning the world around, we are invited into God's saving work in the world, just like Mary was. Though she was in a dangerous place--a young, unmarried girl who became pregnant--she said "Yes!" to God's invitation, with all her heart, soul, mind, and strength. How can we do the same this Christmas?
