“The architects of Advent knew what they were doing when they gave us a season of four weeks of waiting in a story that we know for love to be born in the world. The people of faith who designed Advent knew that a life of faith includes seasons of waiting in stories where we don’t know the ending, where we have to trust that love will be born there too, and love will win for us too, even when we can’t yet see the end of the story, or even the next chapter.”
