This fall, I (Becce) have been hiking the North Kitsap Heritage Park trail system. Each time I walk one of those lovely wooded paths, I mark it off on my map. The next time I hike there, I choose a new trail. One of the things I appreciate about this trail system are the well-marked paths; at any given time, I know just where I am…and I find comfort in knowing my location.
Advent is about knowing where we are on God’s cosmic map of history.
