Today is the first day of Advent, which means it is the first day of the Christian calendar.
Happy New Year!
I am looking forward to this season of anticipation and meditation on the incarnation, and I hope you are too!
This evening I'll be participating in an advent dinner at my church, so I hope to write a bit more about that and how it goes this week. I think it will be a very special time. There is so much about this season that is contrary to the busy-ness and harried-ness of this time of year, and it's fascinating to try and hold the patience and waiting in tension with the go-go, gimme-gimme tendencies we all experience.
