My Believe Out Loud Piece – Advent: The Practice of Active Waiting
Advent season is upon us! In my latest piece for Believe Out Loud, I share my reflections on the attentive waiting that shaped the Advent seasons of my childhood and how it informs my outlook today, especially as we celebrate a year of incredible progress for the LGBT community.
Graceful, attentive waiting is a joy that requires practice and patience.
It nurtures a deliberate sense of time and anticipation. It offers a period of reflection that is connected to a heightened sense of promise. It is active in both spirit and body. At the end of this momentous year for the LGBT community, we would do well to nurture the spiritual discipline of waiting as we both look back and anticipate a new future.
I encourage you to continue reading this post and to offer your own reflection. What does the Advent season offer to you this year?
