Christ the King Episcopal Church
This December our family is following the liturgical calendar a bit too literally. Our family is preparing for our second daughter, Faith, to be born any day now. The season of Advent is one of waiting and hoping, symbolized by the Virgin Mary waiting to give birth to Jesus. Like it or not, there is lots of waiting in life. We wait in line at grocery stores, on freeways, in stores, at the doctor’s office, and even on vacation. In December, the lines are horrible. Waiting can feel like the worst thing, especially when you are waiting in too many lines. Yet sometimes waiting has some spiritual value. Sometimes we can develop patience and wisdom by waiting patiently. Life never stops presenting us with big choices to make, and they almost never happen in our time frame. A challenge in the spiritual walk is learning to wait. Maybe that big life decision requires a bit more prayer. Maybe you are too busy to slow down and reflect upon a big choice. So this Advent let us ponder the spiritual value of waiting. Maybe that will give you something to do while you are waiting in line.
Yours in Christ,
