Advent Pre-Alert

Written by Joel on December 2nd, 2013

December 2013 reflection for Timberville Volunteer Fire Department:

What happens when we hear the County pre-alert tones? We listen and wait. We are in the first week of Advent which is a time for Christian believers to watch and wait for Christ. It is both a time to recall Jesus first coming as a baby in the manger and also a readiness for his coming again. Advent for believers is a lot like firefighter’s watching and waiting in between the time we hear the county pre-alert and our own tones. We know that something has happened, but we don’t quite know if and how God will be calling us. Advent is between a time of “already” and “not yet.” It would of course be tiring to wait in hopeful anticipation all the time, so we make that our special focus for these four or five weeks of the year. Blessings to you all in this season of watching and waiting for our Lord and listen for his call on you.
