Everything is Interrupted| The Rev. Philip DeVaul
Everything is Interrupted
They are surrounded by noise and inconvenience and then a birth happens. This is not how births are supposed to go. This is not how the story is supposed to go. And then the shepherds, this is not how their night is supposed to go. Everything is interrupted. Interrupted by the grace of God. This is an interrupting grace that transforms the lives of the people who are present in our story. This is not a story about the people who earned the right kind of Christmas. This is not the story of the people who got it just right so Jesus would come. There's nothing idealistic about it. It's too true of a story to fit into that mold.
