👉 NEW LENT AUDIO 4 PART SERIES👉 Week 1: Waiting with Creation
👉 God’s “Advent”, that is his “coming to be with us” (ad-venio), happens in many ways and at many levels. One way is through the unfolding of creation, which Scripture sees as a process of growing manifestation of the glory of God and simultaneously of our own true identity.
👉We should think of creation, and our own body within it, not as a work completed in an initial and self-contained act, but rather as a trajectory, a process, something that will become what was meant to be only at the end, when God will be all in all (1 Cor 15.28). If we listen intently and pay attention, we will discover that we are caught in the “eager longing” and “groaning” of the creative process, we are part of a universal gestation: “for we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pain of childbirth until now” (Rm 8.19-22).
