In my short history of celebrating Advent, I have been thinking of it as a contrast of Darkness and Light and the Thing that has already happened. Today I was reminded that it’s really about savoring our waiting. It’s living in the interval of Christ has come, and Christ will come again. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.* The best is yet to come.
*1 Corinthians 15:49
