THURSDAY, DECEMBER 23RD | LUKE 21:25-36 The sun, moon and stars give us signs of the coming of the Son of Man. We should not fear these apocalyptic visions, because Jesus brings the gift of redemption. God saves the world through Jesus. God saves us through Jesus. And we need divine intervention. Our problems are overwhelming and complex. Our planet suffers from our abuse and neglect. Whole populations are impoverished while a few live in luxury. Christ is coming to subvert these narratives of abuse, misuse, greed and neglect to free us to live as God’s beloved community. This Advent, we stand ready, our eyes turned to the night sky for signs of this coming Savior. Come, Savior Jesus, come. We await you with joyful anticipation of the redemption and salvation you offer us. We welcome the signs of your arrival in the night sky and look forward, with hope, to your intervention in our lives and our world. Amen.
