Where is God?

Leave a comment

This was the last Sunday of Advent, the day we celebrate that the arduous wait is over and God has finally come to us.   
But in our little church community, as we shared our “Prouds and Sorrys” together, there was a lot of pain. Lost loved ones, broken relationships, physical and material needs, injustices. 

This whole concept that the Kingdom of God is “now, but not yet” is so very tangible. 

How do we live by the law of love when there’s so much hate? How do we practice forgiveness when we’re entangled in systemic wrongs? How do we go about bringing good things to life amidst all this destruction?

O Jesus, come. 

We cling to the hope of the second advent of God. We await its arrival in active anticipation. We abide in The Source—the only connection to unending Life. We struggle forward. Together. 

Jesus is here. God in flesh among us
