Jesus said, “You must be prepared. The Son of Man is coming at a time you do not know.”
Advent is time of remembering God’s fidelity and God’s desires for relationship with God’s people. We are pregnant with the Spirit and in labor to bring God’s kingdom to birth among us. Now is the time to live like Jesus. Now is the moment to feed the hungry, to forgive those we really love, to restore depressed spirits to joy. Now is the time to watch birds eating the seeds of last summer’s blooms and to let I love you and I’m proud of you no longer go unsaid. Now is the time to give ourselves to those we love and those whose lives we touch.
What gifts has God given me to share?
