As we wait, it is not easy.
As we long for God to show up and fix everything, we are just reminded during Advent that once when God did show up, God was a baby. Vulnerable and crying.
As we prepare the way for God and for justice, it can be exhausting and disheartening to honestly confront just how high the mountains reach and how low the valleys go.
In this video and song by Michael Franti and Spearhead: Hey World (Don't Give Up Version), I imagine God is singing to the world, "Don't give up on me, I won't give up on you. Just believe in me like I believe in you."
What do you hear?
