“The world is not as it should be. Not yet. We wait in the shadows for God’s full redemption and perfect light that is promised.”
Tsh Oxenreider, Shadow and Light
Sometimes Advent feels like one long stretch of holding our breath. Waiting to finally experience quiet after activities and rushing and fitting in all the things. Waiting to get past the reminders of family we are missing, the ache of loneliness, the empty chair at the table. Waiting for peace.
What are you learning about waiting right now? What aspects of Advent or the practice of it fill your heart with hope?
