We need to remember that, as we, the church moves forward in time. Christ is always leading us.
Advent is the time when we wait expectantly for the coming Christ. We reflect about the meaning of Christ’s gift to us and how, without Christ we are people lost to ourselves.
This is a question that I am sure all of us have been asked more times than we can remember. It’s a question that the “asker” queries us, expecting to receive back a short answer. I believe that they often expect to hear something about Jesus in our reply.
It is in our DNA to reform, rebuild, remodel, repurpose, reclaim, rehab, replenish and rebirth those things that we see through the lenses of faith. You might say that the church is in the “re and we” business.
