(November 29, 2009) Advent is a time of waiting, but do we know what we are waiting for? The Gospel reading paints a frightening picture of ‘the coming of the Son of Man,’ and in many ways God’s reign is frightening to those who are comfortable with the status quo. But can the reign of God be seen as good news of abundance and blessing and justice as the Hebrew Bible prophets envision? That’s what I’m waiting for! (Jeremiah 33:14-16, Luke 21:25-36)
