Advent 1 - Year C
Here is a question for the year: No matter what the season, are we actually experiencing an increase of abundant love for one another and for all?
This will call for individual work (prayer) and communal work (restoration).
If we can make some progress on this during the coming church year we will find our hearts strengthened for more years of building on how far we have come. Is this or is this not a time to go beyond the making of a resolution to the implementation of steps that will help us arrive.
This quote may help us: “His mother had often said, When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action. She had emphasized the corollary of this axiom even more vehemently: when you desired a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.” -Lois McMaster Bujold, writer (b. 1949)
