Over time
wind and water
will sand down the edges of a stone.
For humans,
our wind and water
is the grief of the world.

Stay here long enough
and pieces of you
will be pressed upon
by life’s never-ending stream.
It’s enough to make you weary.
It’s enough to make you question.
It’s enough to make you quiet.
And yet, the stream continues.

—excerpt from “Wade In” by Rev. Sarah Speed

“Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus which means “coming”. The season of Advent is the first season of the Christian church year and encompasses the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It is a season of waiting and preparing for the coming of Christ on Christmas, which lasts for 12 days until Epiphany (January 6).

This Advent, we will be going through a series titled How does a weary world rejoice? created by A Sanctified Art. We hope these daily meditations will accompany and inspire you on your Advent journey!
