(Quotes continued from O Come Emmanuel, by Gordon Giles.)
"God sent his Son Jesus Christ as the harmonic resolution of the discord and cacophony of human sin. Yet the glories of incarnation produced only a partial resolution, interrupted and tainted by crucifixion and redeemed through resurrection. This closure...has yet to be fully realized. There are notes still to be played, chords yet to sound...This is what Advent is about, and it is what impels us to sing, at any time of year, "O come, O come, Emmanuel!"
This is the last post in this series. Advent isn't quite over yet, but Christmas is almost here!
