Advent quotes: Henri Nouwen – Waiting in order to learn

I came across the following quote by Henri Nouwen Tuesday while looking for artwork on the theme of “waiting” to include with Matt Redman’s song “In the Waiting”. [Make sure to give that song a listen if you’ve not yet checked it out!  It is PERFECT for Advent!]

May we truly make it our aim this Advent to not merely wait for Christ but to learn more about Him each day, that when He returns, our hearts will be like His.

Nouwen - waiting (Advent)

UPDATE:  The graphic is not always displaying properly.  Sorry!  The quote reads

“Waiting is a period of learning. 

The longer we wait, the more we hear about him for whom we are waiting.”
