First Thursday of Advent – satisfaction guaranteed?

“The Lord alone will be exalted…the idols shall utterly pass away.” There are so many voices that call us, demanding our attention and allegiance; things like status, possessions, or appearance to name a few. Advent reminds us that all these acquisitions are temporary and unsatisfying. The Lord alone remains and fulfills.

First Wednesday of Advent – swords and spears

This one’s a bit choppy, but I believe a good word. Today, you and I don’t use swords and spears to defend ourselves, or to get what we want from another, but we do have a tool that is sharp, cutting and as deadly as a sword…our words.The coming of the Messiah transforms our swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks.
Love, D
