Each Sunday in Advent we will share this opening reading:
We are in this time of the interim,
We are in this time of waiting.
The path we took to get here has washed out;
The way forward is still concealed from us.
We are coming free from all we have outgrown.
It is difficult to become new.
But we will not squander our call in this time.
We will not squander our call to be faithful,
our call to be transfigured,
our call to be a light of love to the nations.
We will be true to the journey,
'til we arrive in the new dawn.
Inspired by John O'Donohue
