Advent is such a nuisance. We love Christmas. We love the food. The presents. The lights. The carols. The presents. The nativity scenes. The pageants. The Scrooge story. The presents. The Grinch. The mandarin oranges. Did I mention the presents? We love Christmas so much that we can hardly wait to dig out our well-worn Bing Cosby Christmas record. We love Christmas so much that every year stores can justify advertising Christmas earlier than the previous year. But in this haste to celebrate Christmas, we forget the valuable lessons that we can learn during Advent.  

Read "Liminality and Luck Dragons" from Grant Martens or listen below:

What is beyond the grave? The writers of the New Testament were convinced of Jesus' promise of eternal life, but what will that look like? And is that even the right question, since both Jesus and his first followers were more concerned with how to live well in this life than with describing what comes next?

Read "Beyond the Grave?" from Joe Heikman or listen below:

The book of Galatians: "Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh."

The book of Ecclesiastes: "Go, eat your bread with enjoyment, and drink your wine with a merry heart; for God has long ago approved what you do."

Desire. We all have it; to be human is to be incomplete and filled with urges, needs, and appetites. What are we to do with those desires? Suppress and control them? Pursue and indulge them? Or is there a better way?
