In a sense, all of Christian life is lived in the tension of the "already" and the "not yet"--between the coming of Christ two millennia ago, and the promise of Christ's coming in glory and the hope of new creation.  Advent is just one of those seasons that names this tension out loud, and steers into it, rather than pretending it isn't there.  So in this latest episode of Crazy Faith Talk, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve explore the way Advent leads us to think differently about time, and how we look forward into a future we have been promised.  Along the way, they'll explore the more familiar four-week approach to Advent (as well as all those fun little calendars with doors to open and chocolate inside), as well as a lesser-known tradition called "Long Advent" or "Seven Week" Advent and how an extended season like that might help us in other ways to live in that tension of now and not yet.  Join us for this conversation here on Crazy Faith Talk!
