Advent 1 - Hope

The days are long.
The nights are even longer.
The anxiety overwhelming.
The worry palpable.
And yet,
Sunday we light a candle;
a candle we name Hope.
We call it by this name
because we have come to understand
that what we see
isn't all that is,
and what we think we know
is far from everything.
We are called
to live into the promise
this small flame represents;
living as if in a world of not yets.
And so the season of waiting begins
in Hope.
