These December days feel dark with violence in the streets, angry unsettled people screaming. A starving teen of 35 pounds clings to life; a boy hidden behind a wall in his own father’s care finally reunites with his mom.
If ever we needed light in the darkness – it is now.
In the Advent (means “coming”) season – the four weeks before Christmas - we wait. We wait for the coming light of Christmas when a small child arrives among us, bringing a message of love for one another, an urging to follow the Spirit in our lives.
We live with so much chaos and terror. Turn off the nightly news – the Good News is coming.
