Advent 2013 : Day 7

As we shall see in the various angel accounts in the Gospel birth narratives, encounters with angels precipitate the humbling of the powerful and the lifting up of the powerless. And as none of us – however marginalised – are entirely without power, and as none of us – however hard we seek to protect our interests – are entirely without powerlessness, this results in an upheaval within. That which needs to be brought low, is brought low; and that which needs to be lifted up, is lifted up. All topsy-turvy.
