Stop what you're doing! It's time to reflect. Here's an introduction to a daily series of Advent Reflections from Rev Susi Kawolics:
"Advent is a season that seems to get lost in our culture. Because we so often think of the month of December as 'the Christmas season' and use this time to busily prepare our homes for the holidays, we often neglect to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. My hope is that these reflections will provide a way of making your Advent journey more meaningful.
"One way to prepare our hearts and more fully experience Jesus’ coming is through deepening and growing in our relationship with God. Because God is so much greater than our minds can even begin to comprehend, we can only know God through glimpses, through reflections. That is what these are: reflections. My hope is that they will provide a means of knowing God deeper and that by exploring various images of God, God will become more real to you.
