Advent

The calendar has turned.
The first candle has been lit.


The Nativity Scene is set.


My favorite Advent calender has been started.


Christian practice can be summed up by the word
patience.
In the New Testament
patience means waiting for God
for any length of time,
not going away,
and not giving in to boredom
or discouragement.
—Thomas Keating Cistercian priest and monk
