Food for Thought-Why I Like to Keep the “Vent” in Advent

Why I Like to Keep the

1. The Vent reminds me that soppy sentimentality is a sure fire way to forget the injustices Jesus came to address.
2. The Vent reminds that I have a voice which must be used for more than singing.
3. The Vent reminds me of the preparation to be done so that I will be ready for the topsy-turvy kingdom where the peacemakers, meek, mourners, and hungry are blessed.
4. The Vent reminds me that this journey is not a silent night; but a lifelong venture in mercy, justice, and sacrifice.
5. The Vent opens up new possibilities for seeing God at work, leaking, and seeping into the world in ways I have never imagined.
