#Wild
9 December

Across uninhabited and inhospitable spaces, the voice of love cries out. The proclamation of forgiveness sweeps across the uncultivated terrain of neglected hearts, making way for abundant life. In the abandoned places, God is. In the wilderness, God works. We await no one less than the savior of the world, full of strength and truth. We wait with joy: wild abandon; wild hope.

#Alert
8 December

In Advent, we are all pregnant. Like Mary, we, too, have been wooed by God. And, moved by her courageous example, we also say, "be it unto me according to your word." And having spoken those words, we observe with wonder the gestation happening within us, we live in expectation of the birth pangs. We must be patient, resilient, and stay alert, for it will happen in God's time. We are all called to be God bearers and in this season we are being readied to give birth to the life, light, and love of God.

#Sprout
7 December

This is a time of expectancy, much like the moments of curiosity and wonder we experience while we anticipate the sprouting of seedlings, hoping that they will take root. We are called to faithfully sow seeds that will take root and sprout in the promised days that are surely coming. So be curious and watch for those sprouts of hope and be alert to the wonders that abound today. May your marvelment inspire you to keep on sowing.

Jesus, God's gift to humanity, is the true light of Advent. He is the "light of the world" and conquers spiritual darkness so that those who believe in him may be children of light, shining as stars in the dark world through loving words and kind acts.

#Night
5 December

Nighttime of the soul is not an easy place to find oneself. It can seem desolate, but it need not be lonely. Long ago, before you encountered your few (or many) difficult nights, the Psalmist predicted this modern experience: "every night I drench my bed with tears." So, do not turn away from the truth encountered at night. But make space for the light of Christ to dispel the darkness once again.

#Focus
4 December

Focus is a learned practice, made more difficult in our hyper-connected digital age. Let us enter this season of Advent with a commitment to focus on the words, images, and promises of Jesus. They will tell us "the days are surely coming" when He will appear. With our focus on Jesus, the "worries of this life" will be replaced by the Kingdom of God.

#Watch
3 December

God is always present and always doing a new thing in the world around us. Watch, so we don't miss it. Watch, so we can be open to being changed by God's presence. Watch, so that we may be able to share the good news of God with others
