See that which is to come

Happy New Year! The new liturgical year begins today with the celebration of Advent. Advent carries with it a reorientation of time and a deliberate tension between end of time fulfilment and promise, expectation and deliverance, between looking forward and looking back. We can trust that God’s word is eternal and the present simply a passing moment, and we can look forward to the coming promise with heads held high in the knowledge that our redemption is drawing near.

Watch, for you know not the hour

Let this Advent not disappear under the weight of shopping and tinsel, but be a beautiful time of watching with thanksgiving and a passionate longing for the return of the Lord in all his glory.
