isaiah's advent prayer

sherry, maria, mary, and lisa have taken off to chicago this weekend for the school for conversion . so isaac and i are having a lads weekend which means plenty of loud music (at breakfast time!)...we share a love for johnny cash and u2 and isaac's favorite track right now is "the saints are coming" (a u2/greenday collaboration). my favorite tune (for this week) is the new u2 single, "window in the skies." it is a great advent/christmas tune - see the lyrics here.
at this time of the year i love to read Isaiah and get excited (along with the writer) about another possible world. so, this advent, i am praying with Isaiah:
"O that you would tear open the heavens and come down..." (64:1)

Geoff,

This reminds me of surfing until the sun would go down in Panama City. It was like the sun was ripping through the clouds on the horizon, making a sun beam boardwalk right onto the gulf!!

i too join Isaiah in the asking God to open the Heavens and come down this advent season. O, btw, that is a great U2 track!
