1st Sunday of Advent
Have you ever heard the expression, “Man plans and God laughs”? There are limitations to planning, and those limitations are the unexpected circumstances life throws at us. Sometimes those circumstances can cause our lives to make sudden turns into completely different territory. But Advent is all about preparation. Preparation is engaging in activities and processes that help us successfully meet the future with its unexpected as well as foreseeable twists and turns. We may stumble and even fall in our life, but with preparation we can build a strong spirit, reliable resources, and a capable imagination to help us get back up and succeed.
In these next four weeks may we all seek out the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our understanding of the wisdom found in scripture. And may we follow the example of Christ in exercising the spiritual gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord (Gal 5: 22-23)
