Advent - a time of waiting, a time of preparation, a time of reflection.
Waiting with expectation.
Waiting with a longing for something greater.
Waiting for an event that will have eternal implications.
How much time do we spend waiting during Advent? 'Who has time to wait during December?!' I hear you say. Our modern day Advent may go something like this:
Advent - a time of wrapping, a time of parties and presents, a time of recklessness, relatives and roast dinners.
But let's take time this Advent, to wait.
With a longing for something greater.
Waiting to celebrate again the event that transformed history
