Advent Three – Monday

Isaiah 8:16-9:1

I’m still processing the events of this past Friday and I imagine several of you are, too.

I know we all are looking for someone or something to blame, but I thought it was particularly insensitive of Mike Huckabee blaming us all for “taking God out of schools” for the senseless killing. Talk about shameless politicization of a tragedy. Anyway, I thought Rachel Held Evans’ comments were particularly helpful and to the point.

I also thought this column from Jen Floyd Engel on Fox Sports.com was helpful in reminding us that life goes on, and we need to do what we can to spread the JOY we feel in our faith.

In the text today, we are promised “…there will be no gloom for those who were in anguish.” That’s the promise of Advent!
