Training our Eyes for the Coming

As we start the season of Advent, James Alison reflects on what the Holy Spirit is seeking to prepare us in this season [Mark 13:33-37].


  1. What did Jesus mean by talking about a “coming” and then setting up a parable about a “going”?
  2. Why is it so difficult for us to understand the ancient Hebrew way in which the Prophet is not so much asking for some blanket forgiveness from God, but begging God to make possible a human way of finding ourselves able to forgive and be forgiven – even blaming God for God’s failure to do that so far?

This post needs your thoughts.
