December 21 - #AdventWord #Generations
Some South Carolinians and equine enthusiasts have something in common. They have turned tracing blood lines to both an art and science. It’s part of our collective history as well, although I am looking at two births that changed the world forever. Abraham thought that God was playing the fool. Angels don’t negotiate. Mary, who some scholars think was around fourteen, carried a child even though she was barely an adult herself. She took on the responsibility of birthing the One we had been waiting for. What will future generations think our stewardship? Our time is now. Please say yes as our ancestors did before us.

As part of this effort to create a global, online advent calendar -- led by Forward Movement -- we will share a new word each day from November 28-December 25, 2021, with meditations from people around the diocese. Each day, the meditation will be accompanied by an image relating to the word of the day as well.
