Advent: Time to Reboot and Begin Again
 


 

December 7, 2014 

The recent non-indictment decisions of the grand juries in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York City have been met with calls for change! The cries of protesters in the streets of cities throughout America are no different from that of John the Baptizer, who said to the Jews of his time that it is time to reboot, to begin again, to turn and live in a different way.

This is the nature of the human journey. It is one that requires that we begin again and again, get back up, recalibrate our compasses, and rediscover anew the ultimate aim of our lives. This is our task. It is what the prophetic masses of our time are marching for, laying in streets for, and even we have journeyed on and to reset our courses towards the ultimate end, which we all journey towards.
