SUNDAY (2/21/21)

Each Sunday through Lent, we are going to observe our predictable
routine of slowness.

In the introduction, I observed, “the shared rhythms of Advent,
Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost root us in the redeeming
story of Christ, and live into the Biblical wisdom of the teacher that
‘there is a time for everything’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1).”

Built into these annual rhythms are the wide spectrum of our life with Christ: anticipation and fulfillment, proclamation and response, lament and joy.

  • Today, spend some time reflecting on a season of life that was characterized by Advent-like waiting. Are you still waiting? What are you waiting and longing for?
  • Spend some time reflecting about this to the Lord – He wants to hear your thoughts, fears, and dreams.
