Next week, we will really begin to feel like it’s Christmas. Our church is already beginning to look like Christmas, decorated with evergreens and winter sparkle. But as we prepare for Christmas, we find ourselves in the Christian season of Advent, a season of watchful waiting. We are waiting for the birth of the holy child, the birth of something new into the world, the promise that all our old problems are not the end of the story.
