What Can't Wait
Advent is a season of waiting, but is idle waiting what God wants of us? In preparation for the coming Messiah, we wonder together- what things can't wait? What demands our immediate attention? What requires our work and preparation? What is it that God can't wait for? Is it our praise, reconciliation, and proclamation? Is it the end of suffering, isolation, and fear?
We hope our Midweek Advent Prayers and the 2019 Daily Devotional might awaken you to the ways God can't wait to create hope, peace, joy, and love. We invite you to carve out time to listen for God speaking to you through art, poetry, music, silent reflection, and embodied prayer. As we are called to action during this season, may we also be mindful of what can wait- for we are also called to rest and receive the gifts of Sabbath.
This Advent, join us in imagining, prioritizing, and preparing. As we wait, what can't?
