Advent: God's love beyond human imagination

"God's extravagant love." These words of Sister
Urban Schumacher come to mind as I think about Advent.
Yes, this is how I would describe Advent.
Advent comes with the extravagant promise of an unconditional
love. When we slow down and live the season we discover an
awareness of a God who loves us beyond human imagination, and we
discover a new awareness of the presence of God in our midst every
day. Advent presents new and energizing challenges of what it
means to live as God's holy people. Advent invites us to wait
with joy, it promises peace and is a season of wonder.
May your Advent days be filled with quiet prayer, reflection,
and daily practices to help you discover the extravagant promises
of our extravagant God.
