LIVING IN THE PRESENCE OF OUR LORD
Luke 1:26-56

Christians call this period just before Christmas the Season of Advent.  It is a special time each year for reflection on and preparation for the birth of our Lord Jesus some two thousand years ago.  We dream, pray, write (as here), feast, fast, and reflect on that long ago event.  We try to imagine what that day of his birth might have been like in that arid Middle Eastern land and what it means for us today here in the rolling hills of Central Kentucky.
