    How I see Advent, vigilance and making sense:

    “‘In the beginning was the Word…”

    “…This wasn’t the Gospel reading for last Sunday….

    “…This year’s First Sunday Gospel starts at Luke 21:25. It opens with ‘”There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars…’ and ends with some good advice.

    “I’m pretty sure a key part of that advice is to ‘be vigilant at all times.’ Looking at what we’ve been learning over the last couple millennia, and a nearly-constant background prattle of false alarms — I don’t see the verse as part of an ‘End Times Bible Prophecy.’…”
