An insight I gleaned from Ernest Hemingway rings true for the mainline church today.
For many of us, Advent is the most meaningful season of the church year. It’s not passive waiting; it’s living into the promised future.
Those of us in violence-plagued neighborhoods look forward to winter's reprieve. Our teenagers understand Advent waiting all too well.
Patience is not one of our stronger characteristics. A flight delay or traffic jam can become an emotional and physical crisis.
Patience is not one of my virtues, as those closest to me know. I want answers now, clarity now, unresolved issues settled now, anxiety lifted now.
