Coming Home #Advent

Georg Michael Schneider 082
I’m coming back,
returning home,
living
where I always did.

But it’s not just for me
it’s a home for everyone
A safe place,
for all who need it,
the vulnerable,
the frail,
the innocent,
each and every one.

Welcome home,
to my home.

The theme of the second week in Advent is The Day of Salvation.  We prepare for that day.

Zechariah 8:1-8 (CEV)

The Lord’s Promises to Zion

The Lord All-Powerful said to me:

I love Zion so much that her enemies make me angry. I will return to Jerusalem and live there on Mount Zion. Then Jerusalem will be known as my faithful city, and Zion will be known as my holy mountain.

Very old people with walking sticks will once again sit around in Jerusalem, while boys and girls play in the streets. This may seem impossible for my people who are left, but it isn’t impossible for me, the Lord All-Powerful. I will save those who were taken to lands in the east and the west, and I will bring them to live in Jerusalem. They will be my people, and I will be their God, faithful to bring about justice.

 

Welcome Home – a proper blast from my youth!
