In the First Advent, Christ the Lord comes into the World; in the next Advent, Christ the Lord comes as Judge of the world and of all the world’s thrones and pretenders, sovereignties and dominions, principalities and authorities, presidencies and regimes, in vindication of his lordship and the reign of the Word of God in history. This is the truth, which the world hates, which biblical people (repentant people) bear and by which they live as the church in the world in the time between the two Advents.”
from Advent as a Penitential Season
Some friends and I are joining together during this Advent season to read William Stringfellow and then to blog our reflections on The Mockingbird’s Leap.
Some have been reading William Stringfellow for years, some of us have never read him before and some indeed, have read next to no theology at all, but everyone is welcome.
If you want to join us, leave a comment here, or email me using the contact details in the Welcome page of this blog. I’ll then email you instructions to access TML. And while you’re at it, see if you can get your hands on one of William Stringfellow’s books, at your local library or online and start reading. Bill Wylie Kellermann’s ‘A Keeper of the Word’ is also available on google books – if you’re comfortable with reading online that makes it free.
And finally, why not go see what people have contributed over the years in TML‘s various guises.
