Advent . Week 2 . Wednesday

Transform us!
Do something to us!
Cause a change to take place
in our hearts and in our relationships!
Let our watching and waiting not be a waste --
not because you don't show up,
but because we don't!
Call us to full & awake participation
in the advent of peace and hope and justice!
Make this, not a season, but a movement
of watchfulness that advocates
and waiting that engages
and adoration that stomps its feet
in restless resistance to a too slow and too comfortable Coming!

For a humorous take on watching and waiting, consider the lyrical (if random) antics of Disney's "Phineas and Ferb."
