The Wisdom of Advent – Learning to Wait
Week 2: Love.
Nouwen describes the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth as a model for the Christian community. This community provides support, celebration, and affirmation that help us continue the process of waiting for whatever God has started.
Advent invites us to seek out others, on their journey or on one similar to ours, who can listen and help us see God’s activity in our waiting.
- Is there someone in your community that you could reach out to for support?
- Or anyone who might need support from you?
You are always the one who comforts and supports me, Tacky. I thank God for you every day.
And you do the same for me. Even after all these years. It’s such a blessing to have a friend like you!
