weekly scripture reflection
Advent means “coming” or “arrival.” These four weeks before Christmas invite us to be awake for Christ’s arrival in our lives and our world. Jesus suggests that his triumphal coming to rule in peace as creation’s rightful Lord will be a time of great disruption. The established powers that govern only for their own benefit will fall like stars from the sky. A stance of spiritual wakefulness is important for God’s people so they don’t end up being invested in a way of living that is passing away.
What faith practices help you to be alert and watchful for God?
What difference does being spiritually awake make for daily living?
You're invited to make a sacred space in your day, praying here and now, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
