Messy advent




Creativity is not wrought
in well ordered surroundings
or in regimented tidiness
but in chaos
and upset
and mess.
God does not wait
until we have tidied the study
or cleaned up the house
ready for the decorations.
God comes
into the midst
of our upset
and disarray.
And if we dare to imagine
that we can achieve the right conditions
and stop and wait expectantly
Still God will surprise us.
An unmarried mother
A little known town
An out of the way stable
Don't those things teach us anything?
God likes surprises!
