The good thing about order is there is a beginning and an end. Our liturgical year is like that. We start the beginning of Advent this weekend. There is an overlap between the beginning and the end of God’s order in the season of Advent.
The beginning that we are talking about is the coming of Jesus Christ the first time. Jesus is the Fulfillment of the promises of God that he will save his people. The second coming of Jesus Christ brings everything to completion. Where we are right now is in the middle. Things got started but they’re not finished yet. We see that with the season of Advent. Our job us to be ready when the Lord comes.
I hope we have a meaningful season of Advent. Let us get our life in order and remember to be ready.
Sincerely in Christ,
Very Reverend Andrew Kemberling, V.F.
