So where is the joy for us? The joy of the season of advent, the goal of our preparation is that our God comes into the midst of our brokenness, and hurt, and showers us with his love, making us whole and clean and filling us with hope. Through our baptism into the coming obe, we are freed to live a joy-filled life, even in the midst of the world that surrounds us.
