Like everyone else, I experience a lot of interruptions in life. Imagining a life otherwise, doesn’t seem possible.

I remember preparing a worship bulletin many years ago and a steady flow of interruptions nearly kept it from being finalized and printed. I became annoyed. What, though, might be the worst outcome? Would it really matter that much to the congregation? Maybe this would be an opportunity to communicate and worship in a different way.

The bulletin did get finished, but I learned. Though each disruption was necessary and a valued opportunity for ministry, without interruptions, life would seem self-centered and meaningless.

Many years ago, the wondrous gift of Jesus’ birth interrupted our lives. Invaluable.

O holy child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray; cast out our sin and enter in; be born in us today. ~Phillips Brooks
