The Lord is coming, always coming.   
When you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you will recognize him at any moment of your life.   
Life is Advent; life is recognizing the coming of the Lord.

Advent is patience it's how God has made us a people of promise, in a world of impatience.

This is very truly a great thread.  What a pleasure and inspiration to go back and reread.  Many thanks to all.  May I add, from this morning's prayer: Your light will come, Jerusalem; the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty, you will see His glory within you.

Isaiah Chapter 61 Verse 11 
As the earth brings forth its plants,   
and a garden makes its growth spring up,   
So will the Lord God make justice and praise spring up before all the nations.

I don't feel deserving to bring this wonderful thread forward again, but I love it and no one objected last year.  May all readers and members have a blessed Advent.
When you consider the quotation about St Andrew, consider also if you will a small, beautiful stone church near the foot of the arch in St Louis, near the river, which houses a statue of St Andrew, terrible but powerfully impactful, depicting his torment and death by Persians.  Some call this a legend, even a myth, because they say it is not adequately documented in history, but I say it is a living testament to enormous Faith and courage.

In The Gospel According to Matthew Chapter 3 Verse 1 says that John the Baptist came calling   
for repentance because God's kingdom was close at hand.

Advent is the time of promise; it is not yet the time of fulfillment.

The book of the Prophet Isaiah Chapter 40 Verse 9   
You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain.   
You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voices with a shout,   
lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, "Here is your God!"
