Then comes Advent, with all its happy memories for us…. Life in a prison cell may well be compared to Advent: one waits, hopes, and does this, that, or the other — things that are really of no consequence — the door is shut, and can only be opened from the outside.
Letter from Dietrich Bonhoeffer to Eberhard Bethge
November 21, 1943 from Tegel prison
Each day of Advent, we will post here a brief meditation on the Coming of Christ; please come back throughout Advent for reflections, art, music, and more.
You’re invited to join us for worship on this Fourth Sunday of Advent: “Prepare for the Promise” at 11 am.
