In this reflection for the first Sunday of Advent, Fr. Erik Arnold reminds us that God speaks to us in expected ways. We’re all so used to the Christmas story that we forget that Jesus came in a way that was completely different than people expected it would happen. The Christmas story reminds us that Jesus comes to us in unexpected ways and that we should keep our hearts, minds, and eyes open!
