Advent: Standing in the Middle

Advent: Waiting for Jesus #2

During Advent, it’s as if we are re-enacting the thousands of years God’s people were anticipating and longing for the coming of God’s salvation, for Jesus. Then at the end of the four weeks of Advent, Christmas is a heartfelt celebration because that ancient waiting is done.

And yet we are still waiting. . . .

At the Desiring God blog, you can read the rest of this, adapted from my book, Treasuring God in Our Traditions.
