2017 12 10: Be Found At Peace

There’s this great tension that Christ-followers are called to live into in Advent. Sure, every day that followers of Jesus walk into secular workplaces and schools, into retail stores and restaurants -- Christians are entering worlds that don’t exactly line up with the call that God has placed in their lives, but the tension and pull is especially acute right now. And that’s a stress and a stretching that each of us feel. It might manifest in a shorter temper or more tiredness, it might manifest in more nervous energy or a renewed vigor to get All The Things done -- how ever this pull between God’s call and the world we live in shows up in your life, it tempts us to put things on autopilot rather than sit still and observe and stay uncomfortable in the middle of this strain.
