Hope in His Coming: Advent 2018

Advent is a time of waiting. Waiting with expectation for something. But instead of a grand play of make-believe where we insist that Jesus hasn’t come yet, and then are relieved when at last we can say Merry Christmas, we enter in to a very different drama. We enter in to a drama of sin, decay, death, destruction… and we acknowledge what we are waiting through, and who we are waiting for. We wait for the prophet, the final word of God, to have the last word. We wait for the priest of God to come and consummate his cleansing work. We are a resurrection people in a perpetual advent, a people of the king longing for his return. So as we prepare to announce the incarnation of our Lord and steady our hearts with realistic hope of his soon and sure return, we invite you to find comfort, not by ignoring the world but groaning with it, confident that Jesus will return again.
