Sermon: Waiting (now with more hope!)

time watch waiting“Waiting (now with more hope!)”

(December 9, 2012) Waiting is never easy, and becomes more difficult the deeper our present darkness and the more wonderful the thing for which we wait. In the midst of the agony and anticipation of waiting for something magnificent (like, say, the end of oppression), can we wait with hope and joy? (Malachi 3:1-4, Luke 3:1-6)

This week’s music for reflection comes from the British folk band Mumford & Sons and is the best example of joyful waiting I’ve ever heard. I hope my Advent waiting can be like this! Listen to “I Will Wait” on YouTube.
