Now that Christmas is past, we enter a new advent season – a time of holy expectation of a second Christmas, the birth of the Son of God in us, the birth of the kingdom of God for the whole world. We await the arrival of a new day, the beginning of a new age, a new time for humankind. When in history has this been more urgent and more necessary than now? Daily violence and bloodshed are a reality around the globe, while closer to home feelings of hatred and animosity are poured out upon those who are unwanted or looked down upon.

God must intervene and lead a revolution with his Spirit and his justice and his truth.
