Advent is the time in our church calendar that redirects us toward our source of sustenance, the hope that God will come, and the promise that God is with us now and forever.
This is to all who serve on the human front, wearing any mask that will get you home. A word: While we are all dying to get out, there is one who died to get in.
I confess: I was a catalog girl who grew up to be a catalog woman.
Jesus was too young to understand the excitement that attended his birth.
The week between Christmas and New Year's is usually quiet around Sojourners Community.
Last year Advent was a very special time for me. A child taught me, in a way only a child can, something precious, something true about the birth we all await.
