Advent 4: A Sabbath Meditation

Come and behold him, born the king of angels. Speak to him or be silent 
before him. In whatever way seems right to you and at whatever time, 
come to him with your empty hands. The great promise is that to come 
to him who was born at Bethlehem is to find coming to birth within 
ourselves something stronger and braver, gladder and kinder and holier, 
than ever we knew before or than ever we could have known without him.

— from “Come and See,” in Frederick Buechner, The Hungering Dark.
