“Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight” (Luke 3:4-6).
The season of Advent, the time of preparing for Christ’s coming, begins on December 2. As Christians, Advent challenges us to make the crooked paths straight and the rough ways smooth. We may need to begin by acknowledging our own complicity in any behavior or attitudes that contribute to the lack of love in our world and pray, “Come Lord Jesus, heal us.”
