BOOK LAUNCH DAY: No Cure For Being Human (and other truths I need to hear)

00:00 00:00
Hello my dear,

Now that 2020 has turned our world inside-out, we see the world as it has always been. And we are all waiting with bated breath for the kingdom of God to break in.

Advent is preparation for the great inversion: God coming to Earth in the form of a human baby.

This is the season of almost. Almost Christmas. Almost a vaccine. 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 tree, to feel the immensity of what we’ve gained and what we’ve lost.

My hope and prayer is that this 4-week 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,
