Arthur Brooks: When Success Isn't Success

00:00 00:00

Hello my dear,

Now that 2021 has shaken our world all over again, our inner desires and deepest needs are revealed. We see the world as it has always been. And we are here, waiting with bated breath for the kingdom of God to break in.

This is the season of almost. We learn to sit in the faint glow of a long Advent, the shorter days and endless nights. This is the season for all of us who need that extra hour of darkness, preferably under a blanket near the Christmas tree, to feel the immensity of what we’ve gained and what we’ve lost.

My hope and prayer is that this Advent devotional will be a way for you to make the very act of waiting, holy. And as we anticipate Christ’s birth together, may we experience the stubborn hope of Christmas, joy in the midst of sorrow, a love that knows no bounds, and a transcendent peace amid a world on fire.

Jesus can’t be born soon enough.

Onward together,
