Advent, darkness, and bearing each other's burdens

“… those who are better off stand shoulder to shoulder with those who suffer. No one is fee until all are free. No one is safe until all are safe. No matter how ‘up’ I may feel personally, my place as a Christian in the larger scheme of things is not to bask in the continual sunshine of God’s presence, but, in repentance and prayer, to come alongside those who bewail the seeming absence of God. Pascal wrote, ‘Every religion which does not affirm that God is hidden, is not true.'” (Advent, Fleming Rutledge)
