Our Advent season is one of watching and waiting for the Lord: seeking signs of his coming. At the same time, we know he is always coming and indeed is here, so are seeking involves discerning to what we are being called right now. And in turn, this means prioritizing ourselves to that discerned call. Thus, we are both active in service and discerning the new call.
So, perhaps being a little uncomfortable is the Advent norm – never too comfortable watching and waiting without seeking the new call nor too busy to withdraw and discern once again the new priority.
