And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, (Acts 17:26-27, ESV) I've never been close to someone really famous. I've driven around the streets of Hollywood and talked to a few movie stars and even met a few sports figures. But, I can guarantee I won't get a Christmas card from any of them. And, I'm sure none of them even remember my name. It seems that the bigger the "star" the greater distance they are from their fans--probably with good reason. God is infinitely greater than any actor or ball player. In fact, He is not even in the same category. He is completely "other." We are all mere creatures, and He is the creator. That's some distance: the infinite to the finite. God is greater and more glorious than we can comprehend. But, that reality makes what we will celebrate in a few days even more amazing; because this impossible gap is bridged, not by us, but by him. This Sunday, we will celebrate the final Sunday of Advent. It will be a great Sunday with readings, singing special music, and more. Please plan to join us, and hopefully you are bringing along a friend. This a perfect Sunday to invite someone along.
