We’ve been through the exile.
We’ve returned home to Jerusalem.
The Temple has been rebuilt.
The faith has been rebuilt.
Then why? Why are we still repeating the same mistakes? Why do we grieve the human condition so?
We crave hope.
Be still. Be silent. Listen. Gabriel answers.
But we ache for the preparations to begin.
Be still. Be silent. The story is beginning.
Our savior. Our hope is near. Amen.
