This Sunday I have an interesting task in preaching. I must address the first Sunday of Advent while preaching the story of Daniel in the Lion’s Den from Daniel 6:6-27.
Advent is all about waiting. The problem is that we, in the suburban, middle-class, USA, HATE TO WAIT for anything. We are addicted to instant everything: TV on demand, instant microwaved food, Hi-Speed internet with Google Apps at our fingertips. We have such a hard time waiting that now we start Black Friday on Thursday Evening!
Here’s where I could use your help. Can you answer two questions for me?
- Do you hate to wait?
- When does waiting drive you crazy? (stories would be nice)
either post your answers on Facebook or Tweet #Hate2Wait
This Sunday we’ll explore lessons we can learn from Daniel’s life about how to wait for God, even when it seems impossible.
