Advent Word Global Advent Calendar

Day 9: #be #存在 Monday December 7

‘Contentment is more about being than about doing, or acquiring, or mastering, or craving, or searching. Contentment is about being satisfied given the limitations of our present life’.

知足與其說是一種作為、養成、主控、渴求、或探究,不如說是一種存在。

And now for the verb ‘to be’ ~ ‘I am, you are, he /she is, we are, they are, everyone is, all are’… here at ‪‎TanShirt‬ Workshop English Class, outreach of ‪‎Advent Church‬…

Day 10: #surprise #驚訝 Tuesday December 8

‘This season of Advent invites us to look and listen for Jesus. Look and listen for the unexpected’.

降臨節期,我們受邀同來注視耶穌、聆聽耶穌。且讓我們真的看見和聽到,那超乎預期的人、事、物!

Day 11: #ask #要求 Wednesday December 9

‘Waiting is a time to prepare the way of the Lord. It is a time to look at our feet, to see where we are, and to be present there. It is a time to examine our lives: to ask ourselves what we want, what we hope for, what we may need to let go of, and to take it to God in prayer’.

等候,是為了預備主的道路。這是審視自己的腳步,明白此刻身在何處的一段時間。在這段時間,我們自我檢查,問自己想要什麼、盼望什麼,又得捨棄什麼,然後藉由禱告,將這一切交託於上帝之手。
