Circle of Life


God invites each of us into the Great Flow of giving and receiving.

Song of Songs 2:11-12

“For see, the winter is past, the rains are over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of pruning the vines has come, and the song of the dove is heard in our land.”


God is perpetually giving life…pouring out love to fill all that is empty…to birth something new…to re-birth where new life is needed.

The cycle of the four seasons shows us this.

So do the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Each of us receives the gift of life and is invited into the cycle of receiving and giving, gratefully accepting what is given…but then humbly letting it go…giving everything back.

The gifts are not to be hoarded…but shared.

It is a beautiful cycle of unconditional love…of participating in the very nature of God and the Trinity.

The invitation is always being given.

What do you need to let go of so God can give you something new?

Are you allowing yourself to be a part of this Great Flow of giving and receiving?

Just as God was born in the flesh in Jesus…how does God want to be born in a new way in your flesh this Christmas?
