“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”
It’s been one year since ChatGPT launched. When asked how ChatGPT felt about celebrating its first birthday, it said, “”Thank you for the birthday wishes! However, it’s important to note that as a computer program, I don’t have feelings or consciousness, so I don’t experience emotions like humans do.” Can I add, “…,yet.” to the end of the sentence? We shall see. We are long past the speed of sound, not yet at the speed of light but in between the speed of technology is picking up and we are going to have to pick up and keep pace so we don’t get left behind. These birthdays will seem like they come at us faster and faster.
This is our most glorious and joyful birthday month. Might I suggest that we each pick up an Advent companion reader so that daily we can ready ourselves for the greatest coming and birthday of all! And, let’s not let the pace of the holidays race by us too quickly. Let’s enjoy this wonderful birthday month!
