#watch


For Advent this year I’m participating in the #AdventWord project from Anglican Communion’s Global Advent Calendar with a daily meditation on the word for the day.

#watch #adventword

“You better watch out…”

“1,2,3! Eyes on me!”

“If you see something, say something.”

The eyes of Dr. T.J Eckleburg.

“All along the watchtower/Princes kept their view.”

“Alwaaaaaays watching…”

Is it just me or is there something ominous about the word “watch” especially in the context of meditating on Advent. There’s an undertone of the surveillance state to this season. Someone’s watching – God, Santa, the cookies on your Amazon.com account.

Perhaps it’s a time to be the watcher, to focus your attention on what’s most important.

Keep your eyes on the prize.
