Happy New Year!

Last Sunday was the first day of Advent, the opening season of the new Church Year. Advent – meaning ‘coming’ – is a time of preparation – most obviously for Christmas, the feast of the Incarnation, Christ’s first advent. However, the season bids us to also consider Christ’s second advent, a decidedly more uncomfortable proposition. End-times theology does not have to take on the violence- and exclusion-laden character popularized in movies, novels, and a populist conservative politician’s foreign policy. Over the next couple of weeks, I hope to explore a more healthy and Christ-like eschatology.
