Those Who Dream… Prepare the Way

Isaiah 40:1-11, NRSV
Mark 1:1-8, MSG

Reflections

Preparing the Lord’s path means challenging systems and structures that we have institutionalized as normal but that God condemns as oppressive and crooked. It means clearing the path of self-aggrandizement, self-absorption, and greed to make way for a community where all of creation is valued

— Traci Blackmon, “Preparing the Way for Justice”, Alliance for Fair Food

  • 2020 has been a year of bad dreams
  • John the Baptist was sent as the messenger, preparing the way ahead for Christ, and also for us to come to Christ
  • to be faithful dreamer, waiting for the coming of Christ
  • Wilderness is where John the Baptist started preparing the way, with all sorts of struggles, physically/spiritually, but it is also where God reveals Himself
