Yesterday I got to practice what I preach. I got into some traffic. I ended up popping into pick up a quick thing at Hobby Lobby and got into a really long line. Grrr… 

But no! I remembered that opportunities to wait are chances to lean into God’s grace and reflect on how I long for God to break into our world. Amidst the sorrow and suffering. In broken relationships and hope for the value of human life.

So, I settled down. I even closed my eyes standing there in Hobby Lobby. And, I thanked God that I could wait. And that I could notice God with me right then and there.

It’s not easy to practice Advent. But, it’s not hard.

Here’s a quick 2 minutes on what Advent is.


We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 a.m. as we continue our Advent journey.

God bless your waiting,
