Pregnant with God: a column in The Mennonite

December 16th, 2008 by isaac · No Comments

The good people over at The Mennonite printed a short Advent meditation I wrote on Mary. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Mary shows us how to extend hospitality to God, which is simply what it means to be a disciple. She made room for God’s life within her own. She opened her life, her very body, to bring Jesus into the world. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the Son received life in Mary’s womb. In her womb, Mary bore the One who is good news in a world full of bad news. The light of the world came from her womb. She shared her flesh with God. Mary’s faith made room for God to move in her life, and through her life into the world.
