I love Advent the joyous waiting and planning for the birth of our Savior. All those Sundays leading up to Christmas are full of anticipation and thoughts of the birth of a baby, sent to save the world.
The readings today focused on how leadership is to be styled. Even though Christ was the King of the Universe his style of leadership was one of servant leadership. Too often this style of leadership is not carried through to our everyday lives. Much of the leadership today is characterized by arrogance, love of self, hunger for power, and a very real disregard for the common good. I even see this in our Pastoral Council meetings time and time again.
Today I pray that we can all see the difference and practice servant leadership.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
