Generosity in quotes

“Christians trust that something is coming that is not yet fully here: redemption, fulfillment, wholeness, peace and the world as God intends it. . . That’s why we do some serious waiting during Advent. Yes, Advent waiting is patient and unhurried, to be sure. But it is also living into the promised future. Advent waiting is gently but steadily working for the reign of God here and now. It is waiting for the birth of a child, and working for the future that that child promised and embodied and taught and lived.”

John Buchanan, pastor of Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago, IL and editor and publisher of Christian Century magazine, from his Editor’s Desk column titled “Awaiting God’s reign”
