Christmas 2 - Year A
“He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and ordinances to Israel.”
One of the questions of our day is about a correlation between our realities and the scriptures. In a three-storied universe this laser-like action of G*D from above looks different than a distributed universe filled with horizontal uncertainty principles, quantum indeterminacy, and evolutionary processes.
As we celebrate a new year, how might we celebrate a new approach to and appreciation of ancient wisdom that does not constrain a future to the past or enter a future forgetful of its past?
Christmas is not just remembrance, but a continued anticipation of the new breaking into the settled and returning it to its in-breaking energy, releasing it from accreted constraints.
