Advent & Christmas: God’s Move

“The advent of the kingdom that comes with the incarnation of God turns not on our skills, talents, efforts, or luck. Instead, God brings about the kingdom. That, in itself, could feel uplifting, refreshing, and hopeful for those whose feelings of filthiness and hopelessness are the product of their fear that they have failed to established a better world and gotten dirty in the process.”

– Mark Douglas, Feasting on the Word: Year B, Vol. 1
