"Active waiting means to be present fully to the moment, in the conviction that something is happening where you are and that you want to be present to it. A waiting person is someone who is present to the moment, who believes that this moment is the moment."

Henri Nouwen Quote and Advent
Henri Nouwen was a great writer and his legacy continues to shine a bright light on all who read his works. Despite being a big fan of Nouwen, I had never seen the quote from him I saw last night at the Disciple's Fellowship Advent Journey. I have to give props to Tyler and Helen for putting that together. It was a great chance to walk my family through that journey. Below is the quote. I pray it blesses you as it has blessed me.
