Advent: We Nurture hope in Waiting

images (1)

Advent is a season of expectation! In hope, through faith, love divine, Emmanuel whispers;

In hope we wait…..peace is coming!

We remember, the Christmas drama: an unplanned pregnancy, an imperial summons to Bethlehem, nowhere but a stable to give birth….

Yet… in the midst of these challenges…. a promise comes into view and is greeted with: singing angels, praise-filled shepherds, and gift giving wise men.

In hope we wait…Peace is coming!

The Prophets longed for messiah’s arrives. Not quit as expected…

Still…. the refrain has entered human history………

In hope we wait…peace is coming!

It comes in sermons…. it comes in healing’s….. it comes in emancipation great and small…………

In hope we wait…Peace is coming!

It was demonstrated with Christ’s life……. it suffered…died….was buried with him ….then resurrected………..

In hope we wait…Peace is coming!

It is imparted to all who believe……..

In hope we wait…Peace is coming!

All who are Children of God….who are created in the divine image….who understand that whatever you do to the least you do so to God.

 

In hope we are coming in….Peace 

But when it comes to you……it must also flow from you…..for in it… is life!

For the lonely, the anxious, the fearful, the troubled, the broken…..

In hope let peace come

 

This advent season, I exhort you to look beyond wars, personal and public, beyond anxieties…. beyond the uncertainties that surround us……..And raise your voice……. this advent season…in hope….through faith…..let divine love…..announce again with singing angels…. praise filled shepherds…… and gift giving wise men!

Peace is coming!
