It’s the second week of advent. Here’s a little piece I wrote to try to express the significance of advent. I’d love to hear some feedback and any suggestions you may have.
Advent is a season
Of anxious anticipation
Of eager expectation
Of yearning for a better tomorrow.
Advent is preparation for the One to come.
The New Son of David.
The Prince of Peace.
The fulfillment of suspended promises,
The emergence of a new way of life,
The reason for hope.
Advent is the processional entrance of
The Suffering Servant.
The Anointed One.
Advent is where a new world is imagined.
A world of
Advent is a flicker of light dancing in the darkness.
In the most unexpected of places.
In a manger.
Advent is Immanuel.
God with us.
God encapsulated in flesh and bone.
God and human as one.
Advent is here.
