Pause For Thought
From Nick Baines, the Bishop of Croydon:
"Call me weird, but I am loving the season of Advent. This means that I am trying hard to avoid Christmas, Santa Claus, carols and cold turkey.
Now, I’m not being miserable about Christmas – I love every bit of it – but we can’t really get there until we’ve lived through Advent... which is a time of waiting, longing and hoping. To jump ahead too quickly is a bit like trying to run before you can walk – or get to summer before the spring. It’s certainly not natural and it’s not really possible.
The trouble is, though, that we now live in a culture that wants to have everything instantly - ‘instant gratification’ as it is known. Or, as a major bank once put it in an advert for their credit card: ‘We take the waiting out of wanting’. Have it now! Get to the end of the journey before you’ve even begun it!
I don’t know about you, but this sounds a bit silly to me. Why? Because we are not made that way.
What is really exciting about children is seeing the anticipation grow through December. The decorations begin to come out, the mood music in the shops changes, Christmas cards begin to land on the mat, and thoughts of presents begin to dominate the waking hours. Plans are made for family parties and concerns are raised for the support of those who have no family or who find this time of year a bit hard to take.
The point is, though, that the anticipation grows – and shouldn’t be rushed. It needs time and space.
Advent gives us four weeks to slow down, re-focus on what Christmas will ultimately be about, and re-acquaint ourselves with the story of why Christmas is worth celebrating in the first place. And what is that story? Simply that God has not exempted himself from the world in which we live and love and suffer and laugh, but has opted right into it. Not in power and glory, but in the vulnerability of a baby born in obscurity – a baby who would challenge and change the world. God with us, God one of us. So, there is hope.
Anyway, I’m sticking with Advent for as long as possible – letting the excitement grow until it bursts out at Christmas with joy. In its own good time."
