Questions of Advent
Did you know? Did you know? Did you know that it’s alright to wonder? You can ask a lot of questions about the world…
And your place in it. You can ask about people’s feelings; You can learn the sky’s the limit. -Fred M. Rogers
Sometimes we feel like we have to have it all together; that we have to have all the answers. We don’t like to admit when we don’t understand something, and we are fearful of what we can’t explain. But Mr. Rogers and our ancestors of the faith remind us that we learn so much by wondering.
During this season of Advent, we will take a look at the four questions asked by the people of God in preparation for the Messiah’s arrival. We will wonder with John the Baptist, Zechariah, Mary, and Elizabeth as we prepare our own hearts for the arrival of God-with-us.
