Posted in Advent, Christmas, Love

Living for now in advent

I was looking for inspiration and found this by Cheryl Lawrie on hold this space:

When Advent isn’t about waiting…

It’s just turned December
and the air is already thick with promises of love
and words of justice, hope and peace.

But promises can be made easily
by those who do not know the cost of their failure;
who do not know how cruel it is
to have love lie just out of our reach.

So if a promise of love would destroy you this advent
let having faith simply mean this:

we will let the idea of love be possible
and we will live so that one day it is.
