Advent: Awake

Sometimes it's easier to stay asleep. Asleep we can stay warm, cozy and comfortable and ignore for a while longer all the responsibilities that are calling for our attention: personal, professional and to others.

Life doesn't give us that option. It may coax us gently awake with sunlight or coffee, or it may jar us awake with the screech of an alarm clock.

Ultimately, being awake is the only option. Awake to the wonders of God, awake to the problems pressing down on us, and awake to our responsibility to fight for one another.
