Do You Know What Time It Is?
Advent is here! Not only in our church, but all over town, lights and trees and decorations are everywhere. People aren’t even waiting until after Thanksgiving anymore to go into all-out Christmas mode. Some put their Christmas decorations up the day after Halloween, and the retail stores had all their stuff out earlier than that.
I love this season, and it carries some of my fondest childhood memories of spending time with my family, decorating our house, cookies, and cocoa by the fire and putting up our Nativity set. So why, right here at the beginning of the Church year, is Jesus talking about the end of the world?
