Today the readings reminded me that the waiting is about two advents, the one celebrated on the 25th of December and the one when Christ returns. It strikes me that regardless of all the interpretation and theology of “the Second Coming”, no one thought God would become incarnate as an infant. I would bet that we are just as far off regarding how it will happen the next time. This is not to open a debate about the second coming, but rather a comment on how Christianity has a whole lot of waiting, from beginning to end!
