Advent One - Awaken

Today is the beginning of the church year. And we begin the year by thinking about the end of time as we know it; we begin to prepare for new beginnings by acknowledging that the old must give way; and that we must make ourselves ready by awakening! It is a strange spiritual truth that we prepare for beginnings by considering endings. (RCL Jeremiah 33:14-16; Psalm 25:1-10; 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13; and Luke 21:25-38)
