Advent 2015 01: Bending in Rhythm
by Cole McGee
As Advent begins we discuss how bending our lives into the rhythm of Shalom is a just and right act in a month like December. We also introduce our Advent rhythm of decrescendo.
14 “‘The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfill the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah.
15 “‘In those days and at that time
I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line;
he will do what is just and right in the land.
16 In those days Judah will be saved
and Jerusalem will live in safety.
This is the name by which it[a] will be called:
The Lord Our Righteous Savior.’
