Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, “The celebration of Advent is possible only to those who are troubled in soul, who know themselves to be poor and imperfect, and who look forward to something great to come.” I think we can all agree that, as we remain collectively stuck in a pandemic for a second Advent season, we very much look forward to something greater. While Advent is indeed a time of celebration and anticipation of Christ’s birth, it also marks our eager yearning for the yet-to-be fulfilled promise of Christ’s triumphal return.
