According to this sermon, there is something about the past that attracts each one of us, a deep longing to return to a better time. No wonder that Christmas and Advent seem so marvelous to us. We are getting ready for the One who brings a new world. We are preparing for the One who recreates the old Paradise for all of us. When He is finished, when He is done with us, He has created in us a new innocence, a new peace, a new harmony.
