A Liminal Advent doesn’t allow me to glibly declare that after a certain amount of waiting God will come into our pain and heal it all.
A liminal Advent encourages and challenges us to experience togetherness with those not like us. Because we need each other. All the each others.
When we give ourselves the freedom to question during a liminal Advent, without expecting ready and complete answers, we may learn that our house isn’t entirely in order. But are we brave enough to confess such a thing?
What if we have forgotten, or perhaps never explored, the stuff of Advent beyond our established boundaries? What if a liminal Advent is more authentic?
The tyranny of the literal has made life more dangerous and more harmful when we interact with each other in a world dependent on relationships.
A final word on the Reimagining Faith series. When I do something because of this faith, then it becomes a way of life to be witnessed.
