Advent 2019: Finding the Roads to Home
Sometimes it requires a wholesale reconsideration of our ways - John demands that from us. David demonstrates it. It could be the boldness of Abraham, or Moses. It could also be the boldness of them within their fear. But, as Christians, if we believe that the center of our faith is this one John is saying is coming, then perhaps each of these characters comes with us, too. Perhaps the “great cloud of witnesses” that gets talked about is heading to where we’re going. That maybe it’s not a straightforward journey - it requires U-turns and recalculations and pulling out the map again and again. But we can head that way, and we have examples along the way.
