Last weekend my husband and I attended our first Indian wedding. It was an unforgettable and unique experience. It was a blessing to watch this couple and their families be joined together through a series of religious and cultural ceremonies.
During the marriage ceremony the Priest talked about coconuts (which are one of the ritual items in the ceremony) and how the grow by the salty ocean but the water inside is sweet. He also talked about how we are to be like the coconut, hard in body but soft in heart. My mind went to the passages in scripture which speak against a hardened heart. A soft heart opens us to compassion, empathy, caring and love. It is how we are able to have relationships which are mutual, open and accepting.
This Sunday marks the 4th Sunday in the season of Advent. This week we will conclude our sermon series on Mary's Song focusing on her words which remind us of God's soft-hearted mercy towards God's people and God's promises to fill the hungry with good things.
We hope you will join us:
