For my personal Advent devotions this year I’m reading through a resource called Finding Bethlehem in the Midst of Bedlam. Seems like an apt description for the season. Everything’s just a tad more chaotic. Kids in chapel today were a bit more wiggly. Friends at lunch were lamenting busy calendars that were keeping them from recreation with their families. Staff in the office were trying to stay non-anxious as parents came to pick up kids from preschool while construction crews tore up the sidewalks and visitors came for a mid-day organ concert. Even at Starbucks this afternoon, the line was longer and the baristas frenzied.
