It is Advent again. We call this time Advent because it reminds us what comes from God for the creation of his Kingdom on Earth.
—C. F. Blumhardt
God’s intervening into human history came about with an almost frightening quietness and self-effacement, and . . . he will come again with the same silence and the same devastating humility into any heart ready to receive him.
—J. B. Phillips
To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.
