The season of Advent, which begins this Sunday, December 2, is an overtly outward-facing time of the year. It means “coming” and reminds us that when God decided to know us, he didn’t merely talk about it from a distance. He reached out to us and came near.
By taking on human flesh and becoming a baby, Jesus made himself utterly vulnerable to us. Each Sunday of Advent we’ll explore the wonder of this in our new series “Majesty and Mystery: Meditations on the Incarnation” and the difference it can make in our lives.
Because God reached out to us in the Advent of his Son, our impulse should be to do likewise. Would you take the initiative to make yourself vulnerable and invite others to join you each Sunday this December? Here’s one way right now to do that. Thank you!
