“Heroes didn't leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched
hand; they didn't wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and
their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were
ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly
knotted, they could untangle someone else's. And maybe that one act
could lead someone to rescue you right back.”- ―
Our world is in desperate need of new Heroes. It seems that humanity is feeling more and more fragile at this point in our history - it just takes a few terrorist activities to "up" the levels of fear in our world. Things are tough at the moment, don't you agree? Or maybe I should change my previous paragraph to start by pronouncing - "Perhaps we just need to realise that our world is in need of a Saviour!"
This is what Advent will be all about - the longing for a Saviour, a hero to break into our time and space - to bring Peace, Love and Mercy.
Psalm 89:19-20 (Message) “I’ve crowned a hero, I chose the best I could find; I found
David, my servant, poured holy oil on his head, And I’ll keep my hand
steadily on him, yes, I’ll stick with him through thick and thin."
