It is a beautiful morning in Fishers, Indiana on this last Sunday in Advent. The waiting is almost over. Mary and Joseph are getting close to Bethlehem; the angel choir is almost finished practicing; the wise men still have no idea what is going to happen; the Bethlehem Inn is fully booked for next week; the sheperds are watching their flocks as usual; and a baby is stirring in his mother’s womb, waiting to make his entrance into the world. Yes, the waiting is almost over. God is ready to make God’s presence known to the world again, hoping to get our attention, hoping that we listen this time and love our neighbors, care for those in need, forgive those who sin against us, and live in peace. Let’s do our part to make it happen this time! See you in/on church…..PJ
