Mark 13:32-37

“Therefore, keep awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or at dawn, or else he may find you asleep when he comes suddenly. And what I say to you I say to all: Keep awake.’

Advent watching

For who and what
do we watch and
wait? And how to
stay awake when
waiting is long?

Only love knows
how; only those who
love stay awake, for
they know their life
depends on hearing
again the voice their
hunger craves, the smile
that cures all fear,
the words that speak
the love their hearts
must hear … and know
for life to be life
for them.

With love we wait
and watch for Love’s
appearing; it is no
burden or task
but eager longing,
for what we know
will come, a waiting
with joy for what
Love … alone
can bring.

Pr. David L. Miller
