TOPIC

Laura Eriksson gave us, as her “offering”, thoughts about surprises. Surprises can make us laugh, weep, mourn, be overjoyed or worried. Our Advent and Christmas stories about Elizabeth, Zacharias, Mary, the shepherds, and Herod are filled with surprises. Laura addressed three questions: (1) What might surprises look like? (2) How did some of the Christmas characters respond to surprise? (3) What do we do with our surprises and how does faith in our God shape our responses to surprise? For the past decade, Laura has been paying attention to the surprises in her life, large and small, writing about them in her daily journal. [JEK]
