Advent IV: Floods of Mercy - Carried on a Flood of Reversal

The good news of Christmas is that God has come to dwell among us-come to the poor, the suffering, to those on the margins.  A seismic event that signals that the old order has passed away. That a new reality has been established. That the current of history has been reversed, and that everything will be forever changed. The powers of death, war, violence and oppression have been defeated: The first have become last and the last have become first.
