“How then can we be saved?” The prophet Isaiah is nothing if not honest in 64:5. Given where humankind is and what we face, is it possible to restore all that is broken in us? On this first Sunday of Advent, we turn to Psalm 80 and Mark 13 as we lift our eyes in hope to the one who wants to restore and revive us. It is darkest just before dawn. We watch for our God to come down and set things right. We will know it is God when he sets us right so that we turn back to him and call upon his name.
Hope for Restoration
