What does it look like to live as those who dream? The prophets, the psalmists, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world.
In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality.
This season of Advent is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time.
Advent is for those who long to dream of brighter days. So perhaps during this Advent — even this 2020 Advent — we will find ourselves dreaming alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Perhaps we will find that we are becoming messengers of God’s dreams for our world.
