Advent 1: Preparing

At this point, the manger is full of only hay.  Soon enough, it will cradle the Christ child, but for now, it has no knowledge of its destiny.

Our choirs rehearse for the big day to come.

The shepherds watch their flocks, by day and by night, and the teachers wait for the day of their deliverance, Christmas vacation soon to come.

Our trees may be decorated, but are we really ready?

Some of us wonder about our destiny; are we still waiting to hear the call?

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
