2nd Sunday of Advent

December 4, 2016


St. Paul tells the Romans:  Whatever is written in the scriptures was written for our instruction.  That they may teach us endurance, and give us encouragement so that we may have hope.

But that hope is also given a particular directive:  it is the hope that we may learn to live in harmony with one another – even if we believe to be different.

It is as we spoke about last week:  God loves diversity, and should we have the ability to see the Creator beyond attributes that make us different, we will see an even more beautiful unity in the diversity.
