We are coming up on the last push of Advent.
Now is the time when perhaps waiting seems most impossible. Indeed, for some families, gatherings with grandparents, cousins, great-uncles, etc. will begin in a matter of days. Church musicals and special services are whipping to a frenzy. And maybe our hearts are burning, just a little, with the strain of the wait.
Good. This is probably a safe indication that Advent is well at home with us, in our bodies, minds, and spirits.
Keeping Advent in this space is possible and worth it. This could be the time in which it matters the most.
