12.3.17 … “Dietrich Bonhoeffer gives us a picture of Advent as “a prison cell, in which one waits, hopes, and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside.” The essence of Advent, then, is expectancy and readiness for action: watchfulness for every small opening, and a willingness to risk everything for freedom and a new beginning.”

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2017 Advent Labyrinth Walks (1st Sunday of Advent), Eastminster Presbyterian Church – Marietta GA:

My sister joined me for my first 2017 Advent walk. We were shrouded in fog and we used the time to talk. It just worked for us today. We weren’t able to solve the problems of the world, but we tried.

The first Sunday of advent focuses on HOPE. Where do you find hope? What are you hoping for?

As I am still relatively new to the observance of Advent, I noodled around and enjoyed Karen’s introduction to Advent:

Dietrich Bonhoeffer gives us a picture of Advent as “a prison cell, in which one waits, hopes, and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside.” The essence of Advent, then, is expectancy and readiness for action: watchfulness for every small opening, and a willingness to risk everything for freedom and a new beginning.

One of the joys of visiting my brother near his birthday. 🙂

We watched Murder on the Orient Express (1974) with my mom and sibs. My brother commented this was his first movie date movie. I honestly don’t remember mine. I do remember my most significant first date movie when I was a freshman in college, Deer Hunter. I always told my children NEVER take a first date to a movie like that!

Do you remember your first movie date movie? What was it?

I nearly slammed on my brakes. The most extravagant Christmas display is already up and lighted … God bless them and their neighbors …

Super Moon tonight …
