Heh. Made ya look.
Actually, I'm talking about the scandal in today's lessons for the fourth and final Sunday of Advent.
- God's power unleashed in some podunk town instead of an impressive capitol.
God's plan wrapped up in a teenage girl instead of an action hero.
God's favor found when we say "Yes" to his gift instead of "Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
The scandal of everything upside down: the mighty knocked off their thrones and the meek lifted up.
The scandal of all history turning on one child's birth, short life, humiliating death and empty tomb.
The scandal of one particular name to save the whole cosmos.
Oh yeah. The church got scandal.
