Hope, peace, joy, love all come in the gift of Jesus. This is the gift of Advent
Without the birth of Jesus there would be no Christmas. A lot of what we get caught
up in this time of year actually has very little to do with the birth of Jesus Christ.
But Jesus hasn’t moved from the center of the season—maybe we’ve moved away from
Jesus is not at the shopping mall, or in any of the chores of the season. Discover
and celebrate Christ in the joyous chaos of spending time with family and church
family. Welcome and worship Jesus in the quiet moments of candlelight and prayer.
The gifts of Advent and Christmas — hope, peace, joy and love — these are the blessing
of our Savior Jesus Christ. Where will you find them this season? I pray one of those
places is in Church with us.
On behalf of the Parish staff, we wish you a very grace-filled Advent, a merry Christmas
and a blessed New Year. We hope that the Spirit of Jesus Christ may enlighten you
this Advent and Christmas season and that you may be filled with the joy of knowing
our Lord and Savior. See you in Church!
