Advent Eve Today we bid farewell to the lengthy liturgical season of Pentecost. We made our way past the Day of Pentecost, weeks of Ordinary Time, Reformation and All Saints days. But that’s enough looking back. For most of us, it is easier to look back at what is known than it is to look forward into unknown. Even when the past is undesirable, we often choose to dwell there and not dream of the future. The liturgical name for today is a fine example. God’s people begged God for a king even though history had taught them human kings tended to disappoint. God’s people could not imagine a future that looked different from the past they had known. And so, God would take things slowly. The future would begin with a 9-month wait period. To everyone’s surprise, the king was born ordinary and impoverished. He ruled with love and not force, which was the future none of God’s people imagined. When his kingship ended with execution, what appeared to be failure won a future of eternal life for you and me. It goes to show that a future with God might not be so bad after all.
