First Sunday of Advent

"Such is the company of those who seek him,
    who seek the face of the God of Jacob."  Psalm 24:6

the kids who keep their
worn-out toys and give
new ones to strangers;
the folks who skip 
the shopping frenzy
to stock bags at the food pantries;
the immigrant teenagers
who move down the street,
ear buds firmly entrenched
and shovels tightly gripped
as they clear the sidewalks
of all their new neighbors,

let us join Advent's company
of caring, compassionate,
faithful seekers of our God.
