This Journey

Thoughts, rants, prayers, sermons I'll never give and other stuff gathered as I make my way through this life.

Advent 2, 2012

Prepare the way.

Shovel the walk. Rearrange the furniture. Make room. Change your life. Turn around. Be ready: what’s happening is new and will take up more and different space.

I told someone today I feel like I’m living in perpetual Advent.

I’m sort of tired of it. I’m exhausted by the hyper-vigilanceĀ of the whole exercise. I feel like I’m at the bottom of the well and scraping the bucket along the muddy bottom for the where withal needed to stay alert, much less ready. I’ve seen it coming, heard it coming, felt it coming for so long. And still – not here? Really?

I repeat the refrain of the psalmist: How long must I wait?

A paradox wrapped in an enigma playing the accordion. I'm a sinner-saint, child of God working at the cross-roads of church and world. A Deaconess called to connect people living near the center with people on the edge and to help your life sing (literally and figuratively) while doing it. People don't always get the deaconess part. Could be the swearing, the corporate job, or the wine.
