A place to come, sit, pull up a chair and talk about what is going on with Salty Sidewalks.
Have you ever noticed that the world is a sweeter place in December? People seem to smile more. They greet you at the checkout counters, talk and laugh. " Merry Christmas" is still heard on the lips, and it is always accompanied by smiling eyes.....a season of wonder. A season of expectation....and, really, isn't that what Christmas is all about - expectations rising? Wonder multiplying? Santa's cool - he is the symbol behind the season - for me- a jolly, old elf....that says its ok to be kind, and giving - it is almost expected during Santa's season...but, the true gift- the gift that is beyond measure is a baby. God, in all of His infinite Glory chose to save the world, one night, with a pink, wrinkled, vulnerable baby- that the world didnt recognize. When the face of God entered the world, He was at the height of vulnerability . He came and met mankind, flesh to flesh, in a stable, with flies, and poop, and scratchy straw- He met mankind in all of its filth- and the heavens erupted in praise. I love the unpredictability of God- I love that He does things that amaze, confuse and fill me with wonder.
Christmas- houses this time of wonder. The world slows down. The world smiles more...how about if we take the month of December and give the gift of the Gospel throughout our sidewalks? What better gift to give this Christmas- than the Word, that became flesh?
