Untangling the Christmas tree lights seems to present a perennial challenge. Stretching out a string of lights makes it easy to find bulbs that have gone out, but even carefully bundled lights get tangled up. John the Baptist came to “make straight the way of the Lord,” our Savior and Light for the world. Advent invites us to do much the same thing, even though the holidays sometimes find us practically tied in knots over all of the things we want to do to get ready for Christmas.
