It is the 11th day of Christmas. Epiphany is in two days. In the church year we have moved from the preparation of Advent to the birth of Jesus on Christmas. So aren’t these Advent words on the calendar, and even Christmas “so last month”? Maybe not. When I look at my calendar, I am reminded that the words in the balls are really the words of my faith throughout the whole year. Although our Savior is born, we Christians are still waiting, watching, and hoping for the final fulfillment of the Christmas promises.
