Advent reflection -- Dec. 3

This is today’s reflection from “How Far Is It to Bethlehem? A Spiritual Guide for Advent 2010” by Sr. Carol Perry, S.U., for Marble Collegiate Church.

“I must turn aside and look at this great sight and why the bush is not burned up.” Exodus 3:3

Moses notices things and wants to account for them. Every road offers something for us to learn from. Of course, little does Moses know that his walk towards a bush flaming in the desert is an approach to God. He follows his instincts to investigate it. We too must sometimes have the courage to step away from the familiar and readjust our focus.

Let us pray for the grace to see what is different and find God there too.
