A happy and blessed fourth Sunday in Advent to you. For some reason this year I’ve managed to avoid the “Christmas rush” and the intolerable press of crowds at malls. Why? The Internet. I’ve done all my Christmas shopping on-line and, at least for me, it has made it possible for me to focus more on the meaning of this season, rather than worry about rushing about in traffic and crowds. Now, for some, this is all part of the fun of the season, and I recognize that. But for me, thanks to the Internet, what I find to be the more unpleasant aspects of Christmas have been removed. And that’s a happy thing. So, as we move into this the last week of Advent, may the Lord of Christmas, the Babe of Bethlehem, fill your hearts, and your minds, with peace and joy.
