Advent is a time of waiting and expectation. We wait for the Messiah. We wait for the full reign of God on earth. We wait for justice and peace supreme. We wait for all LGBTQIA+ youth to be off the streets, and we wait for all children to be out of cages and detention centers. And as we wait, we join God in bringing about God’s reign on Earth now.

There once was a little boy named Yeshua. He was born to a woman named Miriam and a man named Yusef. When the child was young, the man who was king, Herod, decided he needed to kill all of the male children under the age of two. Miriam and Yusef took their child, and helped by strangers along the way, traveled from Judea to Egypt. When this refugee family arrived, they were welcomed. They found shelter and food; they were able to stay together.
