Advent Word 2022, Day 18 ‘Beloved’ 被愛的

#AdventWord #Beloved #被愛的

‘“Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord” (James 5:7). It is challenging to practice patience in the best of times, and during Advent, it seems many in the church struggle to slow down and be. I feel guilty with my own impatience, and yet, as I read this passage from James, I find comfort: we are still God’s beloved. The scriptures this week remind us that the Messiah is coming. We are called to be faithful and wait and are promised all will be made new in God’s time for all of creation—for us—God’s beloved.’ (Erin Wolf)

Walkie-Talkie Building, City of London, ‘Our beloved city’…

London, our beloved city….. “A bad day in London is still better than a good day anywhere else.”
