Advent 22 – Sign

No man is an island…

20131226-095028.jpgTruth is, we almost never build or create or accomplish anything wholly on our own.  We all stand on the shoulders of the people who have made the world what it is today (for better or worse).   We use technology, knowledge and experience gleaned and developed by others.

I wonder sometimes, if we were to do better about acknowledging how we rely on others, we might do a better job of working for the good of the whole.

The sign of the coming Messiah was a star that lit up the whole sky.  It shone on the rich and poor alike, on young and old, on cities and villages and shepherds’ fields…  just as the Christ came for all humanity.
