Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings
designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is
also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish
bulletins people take home.
From today’s Isaiah reading:
"No ear has ever heard, no eye ever seen,
any God but you doing such deeds
for those who wait...."
Despite the gaps we in the church and world have
created between us and God, we express our faith
this Advent that God has not given up on us. We
reach out for God and in our waiting, discover God
has been embracing us with love all along.
So, we ask ourselves:
In what place in my life am I waiting for God to
How do I feel during this time of waiting?
What enables me to wait in patience?
