Late in time, behold Him come / Offspring of a virgin’s womb. (“Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”)
In the liturgical calendar, Advent is the season where we anticipate the coming of Christ’s birth. And today, December 25, we celebrate the arrival of Jesus. Today we rejoice over Christ’s birth and commemorate our waiting come to an end.
But for many of us, today, tomorrow, and for the foreseeable future we’ll continue to be thick in seasons of waiting: for a new job, a spouse, a child, a home, a big move.
