An Advent and Christmas Analogy
by Adam Jones
Hi, my name is Adam and I'm a sweetaholic. It's been less than 24 hours since my last dessert.
I am sure somewhere (and possibly close by) exists a support group for those addicted to sweets. I would find myself close to that category for sure. It wasn’t always that way. Growing up in the south, I would gladly choose seconds (or thirds) of those savory, deep-fried goods over dessert any day. And then I moved to Bosnia and fell in love with every meal or every coffee visit involving a homemade sweet of some kind. I was hooked. And to this day, a meal is not complete until I have even just the smallest amount of chocolate or some other kind of sweet. It’s bad, especially when I married such a good baker!
That God Loves the world and demonstrates it.
That Love is the Supreme Element of Advent
That the Joy of the Lord gives Strength
That Christmas is rooted in the joyous arrival of Christ prophesied in the Old Testament
