Dietrich Bonhoeffer, writing in God is in the Manger, says:
Whoever does not know the austere blessedness of waiting – that is, of hopefully doing without – will never experience the full blessing of fulfillment.
As Advent folds into Christmas, what do you wait for now? What brings you the full blessing of fulfillment in this Holy Season? Let us wait in inward emptiness for God to fill us.
