The Final Work of Advent

“Now the birth of Jesus took place in this way….” (Matthew 1:18-25)

Matthew’s description of how the birth happens does not mention anything that is on my to-do list. So maybe the real work, the final work of Advent, is to get out of the way and let the baby be born. Get out of the way and let the baby be born. Such difficult work. Such necessary work. Such holy work.
