It is rare to enjoy waiting in our American Culture. Everything is supposed to bring us instant gratification. Our Church says wait, Christ is coming, prepare your life, heart and soul for the arrival of the Christ Child. What do we do to prepare? We run around like crazed consumers purchasing everything we can find to give as gifts to those who already have too much. We may go to Church seeking a change of heart but when we get out in the parking lot we head towards the nearest mall.
How can we merge our modern culture with what Christ is asking of us or can we?
