An Advent reflection
By Morris DuBose
At this exact moment, I feel lost. The full weight of my fragility is upon me more often than not these days. This year has been long. And despite the glimmers of Hope that remain, I find myself more tired than I've been in my life. Our holidays this year are unlikely to resemble any holiday we've experienced in our lifetime. For some of us the ideological gulfs between us and our friends and family will make this a different Christmas season. For others the reality of enduring a disaster level pandemic will reshape our Advent.
But while all of these realities will change our interaction with the people near our hearts, it can also be a time of renewed reflection on the sacrifice of the incarnation that Christ offered in coming to Earth. A reminder that we turn to a savior who suffered with us. One who watches us even through these extraordinarily confusing and at times overwhelming experiences. As we reflect on Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love, we pray for the faith to endure these moments and remember that the spirit of God is with us even to the end of the age
