Last night Craig and I attended a concert by Ordinary Time , and Jill McFadden commented on the need to hold the tension of longing and hope with in Advent. If we only focus on the longing for Christ’s coming to be fully realized in all of creation, all of humanity, and all relationships, we can sink into lament. If we only focus on the hope of the season, we can sink to sentimentality. In tension we acknowledge the beautiful and amazing thing it is for God to be in an infant’s body, and we acknowledge our hunger for more of His rule and reign to be evidenced in our realities. This song beautifully holds the already/not yetness of Advent. Thank you Javier and Mikayla for sharing it.
