The Spirit's Gift
In the film The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and her pals the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow journeyed to see "the wonderful Wizard of Oz." The Wizard was thought to be some kind of god, until Toto, Dorothy's dog, rips the curtain back revealing reality. The Wizard was far from a god; he was just a guy operating a bunch of controls behind a green curtain. To see life as it really is is a gift. This is the work of the Holy Spirit; it's the gift He offers. Reality. Sunday we explore this marvelous gift the Holy Spirit offers this Christmas season.
