Adams: Advent letter

Sunday, November 27, 2011
    Advent I
    “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.”
    —Daniel 7:13-14 (NIV)
    Well, here it is Advent, and the Christmas season will soon be upon us. When He came the first time, it was as a Baby—showing us an aspect of His nature very suited to our understanding. Now that we are grown (even if not very mature), we look forward to the return of that same Jesus who went away for a while: Man when He left, Man still, Man when He shall come back. May we all see Him as He is, now and forever.
    ... Robert MacColl Adams (1913-1985), from a letter, 1975
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have made Yourself known to us as a Man.

Robert, can you make any Advent resource recommendations? A good standard liturgy, perhaps, or a specifically Advent-oriented prayer/reading cycle?

Grace and Peace,

Apart from the Book of Common Prayer or similar official resources, I do not. Why don't you post your question on the CQOD fan page and see if you can get any responses?
