Advent Christmas Letter

Love’s will on earth may be through you.
-Angel to Mary

The infinite becomes finite
-W.H. Auden, oh, and the gospels too.

Use the word Love when you say God.

Guess what? The world will end when the kingdom comes at the end of history.
God, not the present incumbent, will handle it.

How to pray? Give thanks for every person in your address book and then add a few more.
Pray for 1/30th of the list every day for a month, then start over. It’s OK to pray for our immediate family every day and then the rest. Remember, prayer works on us, not on God. God “does not give a hoot” for our measly prayers. A prayer of thanks for our family and friends will work on us. We will become truly human.

It is ok to ask God for help, help, help. You may get it, you may not get it, or you will have to help yourself. But you will feel great just asking for help

More than you want to know about our modest travels. A week in Palm Springs, five weeks in London in June, two weeks in Utah in August, in October Robert in New England visiting family while Ann was on a three week safari in Tanzania with her brothers and sister. Any questions?

Health? Robert creaky, Ann robust.

Love and bask in the Christmas story. We humans are loved so much that our creator came and lived with us.

A Blessed Christmas,

Robert and Ann
