Sunday 2nd December (Advent 1C)

ADVENT 1
There will be signs…
Things will get worse before they get better…
Upheaval
displacement
distress
confusion:
everyday events for many
perhaps most of us
in one way or another.

Yet the kingdom of God
is near
now
in the midst of
fainting
fear
foreboding
our daily concerns.
And we bring it closer
(Jeremiah says,”The days are surely coming…”)
in humble and just living,
watchful
expectant
exercising justice
and that quaint idea of ‘righteousness’
(acting to set things right).
