I cannot believe it's almost Advent! I also can't believe that it's 6:30PM and it's pitch black outside!

One of our presenters last week commented that in her opinion, it's not a coincidence that the word "Advent" is in the word "Adventure." Advent is a waiting, but it is a waiting for a grand adventure - Emmanuel - Christ with us.

This afternoon our Novitiate Community joined the Sisters next door for Advent Faith Sharing. We're invited to join them each week of Advent for a discussion of the coming Sunday's Gospel. It was so humbling to be with these women as they shared their faith journeys. Like all of us, they struggle with the busy-ness of life. With the irritations of the day. With the need for patience. And the challenge of making time to just be in the presence of God.
