In church Sunday morning the children were asked what they saw that was different in the sanctuary. One youngster immediately pointed to a banner on the chancel wall: “Hope”. Another acknowledged the Advent wreath with its candles. Hope was our focus on the first Sunday of Advent. As the first of the candles was lit, we read the liturgy…
We wait in hope.
We wait for God to be revealed.
We wait for God to tear open the heavens and come down.
“We wait in hope for God to be revealed … for God to come down.”
