“Across the Border”

Passage: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37

Bruce Springsteen asked, "What are we without hope in our hearts that some day we'll drink from God's blessed waters?"  Advent is a time when in the parchedness of our despair we thirst for a hope of a redeemer who comes bringing living water - not tomorrow, but today, not only in the sweet by-and-by but also in our bitter here-and-now.
