December 2 marked the beginning of the Christian New Year. We are now in the season of Advent. This is the time we remember the first coming of Christ as we look toward his return. Ben Witherington and John Wright both had wonderful thoughts on their blogs about this season. I am planning on publishing a meditation during the Sundays of Advent. I am behind this week because I have been sick. So enjoy what Drs. Witherington and Wright have to say about this time of the year and pray over the challenges they give us.
