Our weekday readings have been talking about building our faith on a strong foundation. As we read the message of Jesus in the Gospel, we are hearers - but - we also need to be doers. We “do” the Word by responding to situations as Jesus did. We are compassionate, welcoming, forgiving and we put ourselves out for others.  We arrive at peace and joy realizing “there are no bystanders or observers, only workers and servants.”  

 

At the beginning of Advent John the Baptist calls us to repentance. It involves a change of heart and mind, reconsidering the way we think and act. We are invited to redirect our lives as our awareness grows and our perception of what we are celebrating comes more into focus. Celebrating the entrance of Jesus into our lives challenges us to begin something new by clearing the clutter so we can see more clearly and live more freely.  

 

Advent is a chance to make a quiet space in our lives every busy day. It is an invitation to leave our comfort zones, our schedules, our routines, in order to search out a place where we can listen to hear what God has to say and to reflect on any changes needed. What can I do this Advent season to allow some time for quiet reflection? Does the way I am preparing for Christmas need any evaluation considering Jesus’ message I am hearing?  

I hope you are continuing to enjoy and find peace in this quiet season of waiting and hope.
