Gray MattersPeace Is Here: Christmas Reflections Hardcover
Life as Advent - Romans 8:22 "For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now."
"Every Christmas I'm reminded of the longing I felt growing up as I would anticipate this special day. And while I recognize that I was more excited about opening gifts than anything else, the longing is still appropriate. The days leading up to Christmas- Advent, or 'waiting'- are about anticipation, reflection, feeling the weight of the Coming of the Christ-child. And though we immerse ourselves in the spiritual practice of waiting, we know that Jesus has already come. It's this tension that we live in, the already and the not yet.
This season of Advent is a reminder of the broader groaning and anticipation we experience all life-long, for the restoration of this broken world. The Christian life is an advent - a patient longing for renewal and destination, for when there is finally no curse and our souls are at rest. May the peace of Jesus bring light to the darkness that threatens to overwhelm."- Jars Of Clay
