With the second Sunday of Advent behind us (listen here), I would like to encourage us all not to get swept up in the season as to miss its formative impact. If you are like me, you love the sights, sounds, get-togethers, food, and songs that fill the air during this month. Though wonderful, those things can capture our attention more than intended and keep us from experiencing the full person of Christ and miss his work on the cross. So, to encourage us to have thoughtful “Advent Thinking,” below is a beautiful article written in the style of C. S. Lewis’ Screwtape Letters. This captures our tendencies to make this season about unhelpful, and in the end, distracting things. Click the title below, read it and reflect on its sobering exposure of our habit of making a good thing less good.
Grace and Peace,
