Celebrate Advent: Make room for courage.

jenmichel@me.com

We're all universally cowards if we have courage enough to admit it. I know I am.

It shouldn't surprise us that the Scriptures take up a familiar refrain, reprising a phrase that comes again and again to new characters in new chapters.

Do not be afraid.

These are the words spoken to Mary, to Joseph, to Zechariah, to the shepherds.

Why is it that the words of God inspire such fear?

Maybe it's because God is relentlessly moving us out and beyond the limits of the familiar and the comfortable.

Maybe it's because the only way we grow is to step into new shoes and take precarious steps of faith.

Maybe it's because greater trust and dependence are born in the moments when we most feel the weight of our inadequacies, the moments when the light is obscured.

Moments when we, like children, have to put our hand in His.

Do not be afraid.
