This year’s Advent theme is Reflecting the Sacred. As religious folk, it is imperative that we grapple with our incarnational faith and what it calls us to be and do. Advent and Christmas are as good a time as any to talk about incarnation. Richard Rohr’s book, The Universal Christ, and its companion book of reflections, Every Thing is Sacred, invites us to imagine that, indeed, every thing, every one, every encounter, is pregnant with the sacred. Not in a “where is God in this?” notion, but in a much more radical “Christ is here and permeating and radiating from everywhere” kind of way.
