Advent 2018

Small Dancing Light

Advent is the season of waiting.  The rituals of Advent are reminders that in the midst of winter darkness, new light will dawn.  New light of hope, new light of peace, new light of joy, new light of love – new light of Christ.  Advent walks from Thanksgiving to Christmas.  A light dawns: small, struggling, determined. Advent progressively sharpens focus, revealing that the far-off waving and kicking of the baby’s arms and legs in Bethlehem’s manger are the early dance steps of unconfined redemption. Every hope we have, every promise we hang on to, all anticipation that overcomes anxiety, each one is a small dancing light on the dark horizon.  Always know that something or someone is coming and that the coming will forever change your life as you now know it.  That truth contributes to the importance of these words:  “The Lord is with you…and also with you.”  Amen.
