It isn’t complicated. We desire a presence, not an idea.
When we hear about Jesus coming again to judge, and about the fire…yeah, excuse me for thinking that might not be such great news!
There was a moment when we decided we would do it ourself. And that was the same moment that “Jesus is our redeemer” became just another thing written on a Hallmark card.
Advent isn’t about Christmas cookies. Sorry.
When we begin to look outward, turn our focus outward, we become a people of great expectation. And that expectation will be fulfilled.
In Advent, we call to mind the fact that throughout history, God has constantly been trying to give us more than we deserve. If only we could see.
En el Adviento, recordamos el hecho de que a lo largo de la historia, Dios siempre ha estado tratando de darnos más de lo que merecemos. Si solo pudiéramos ver.
