'Being Attentive to God's Word'

Second Sunday of Advent

John was clothed in camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He fed on locusts and wild honey. And this is what he proclaimed: "One mightier than I is coming after me."

- Mark 1:6-7

On a bitingly cold Chicago day, my sons and I were riding the mass transit train to one of the museums. The car was full of characters (including us, southerners shocked into icicles), but until the preacher boarded, we didn't really know what a character was.

Old and bearded, wearing a hat rather like a Cossack hat with "Repent" appliqued on it, he never stopped talking but had only a few things to say: "You think you're above everyone, but you're not. Judgment Day will come, and you'll see. We're all a royal family. Ain't no one better than anyone else." And so on.

The boys pressed close to me and stared at the man and then at the floor. As we got off and walked away, "A strange figure," I said, "and hard to ignore." Perhaps we weren't supposed to.

Lord, make me attentive to your Word, breaking into life in challenging ways.
