What Might God Be Birthing?

What Might God Be Birthing?

We often say that advent is a time of waiting, of sitting in darkness, and watching for signs of Christ’s ever growing light. But I think even more so, Advent is a time for dreaming, for hoping, for re-imagining our world through God’s eyes… 
It is a time to face the darkness and choose not to respond with fear, but instead ask the hopeful question… “What if?” 

What if God is birthing something new here? 

What if the circumstances of our life aren’t just some random occurrence…  What if this is the Holy Spirit at work even now… even in this darkness?

Advent is a time to dream with God anew…
what might it look like if God’s light were to shine even here?
