Advent Starts Now

November 30, 2009

Advent starts now

Not when the gifts were stuffed into shops in warm October.

Advent starts with a voice crying “Get Ready”

Not with the coos and calls of comsumption.

Advent starts with hearts stripped bare, scaffolding down, empty and still…

Advent starts with a people humbled, desperate, dependent on Grace for the future unfolding.

It starts with a promise: God comes

The feast is not the goal; the feast is a promise:  

He will be with us 

So get ready

Advent starts today
