Advent is about hope. It is hope in the waiting. Hope in the joy that is to come. Hope in the peace our earth and bodies cry for.
We are a hopeful people.
Even in tragedy. Even in grief. Even in mourning. Even in the drudgery of the day to day.
We hope. We hope because we know the Lord’s love comes and covers the earth like water.
Today live in hope. In the midst of trials and waiting remember our hope comes with expectation. The certainty it is already done.
