Like a sewer

Pick an event, any event.  It could be take weeks or months to put together, or it could be something that just happens.  It could be a one-time thing, or something you do every year. 

Whatever it is - what it means to you or it means to me, what each of us gets out of it, depends on what each of us puts into it. 

That’s how Advent works.  Don’t give it another thought, and it’ll be the count-down to Christmas.  But not much else. 

What if you want something more?  For both Advent and Christmas to be more meaningful? 

It all depends on what you put into it. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
