Bonhoeffer on: Celebrating Advent

"Celebrating Advent means being able to wait. Waiting, however, is an art that our impatient age has forgotten....We must wait for the greatest, most profound, most gentle things in the world; nothing happens in a rush, but only according to the divine laws of germination and growth and becoming."

Have a blessed Advent and Christmas
