The first Sunday of Advent this year has us watching for the Lord's coming. In many of our lives we are excited and at peace with the thought of Jesus' returning--but for others it is not such on awesome thought. It is not a peace filled thought. Perhaps it is time that as we watch for him that we should become truly a people of his presence. That we would prepare ourselves and our lives in such a way that the peace that we have might become a welcoming place for those who do not believe.
