Why we are waiting…

Here’s another great Advent resource — this time from the Church of England. Pull up a chair, grab some cocoa, and warm yourself to the glow of a nice virtual fire at the website: Why we are waiting…

Each day features a thought, perhaps an excerpt from a book. Here’s the nugget from November 30.

God’s call to us remains a call to change: to leaving and accompanying, to moving and changing, to growing and flourishing. It is part of human nature to yearn for stability, to put down roots and stay put; but it is also a rule of nature that things which do not move do not live. Water that does not move becomes stagnant and in the same way when we do not move we become sluggish and hard to change. God’s call does not necessarily ask us to move our physical surroundings (although sometimes it does); most often it asks us to move our internal surroundings, to be prepared to be changed and transformed. God calls, and waits for our response…

That’s Paula Gooder in The Meaning is in the Waiting. Anyway, this is a great place to stop by each day during Advent.
