Sunday: 9:00 AM Holy Eucharist
Advent is the time we celebrate Jesus coming in a threefold manner. First we are filled with joyous anticipation waiting to celebrate something that has already happened - Jesus coming to us as a beautiful baby. We also feel the awe and wonder of Jesus with us as we take communion. At the same time we are looking forward to his coming again in glory.
Our readings for the Sundays in Advent build on this celebratory theme. We enter into Advent with very provocative readings designs to stimulate thought and action. They center on God’s fulfilling his promises – two of which have occurred, one is yet to come. Associated with the promised second coming is the judgment of the world. This is where we should reflect on our efforts to make the Kingdom of Heaven a little more real here on Earth.
What have you done to help share God’s hope filled healing spirit?
Advent is also about being a herald with the prayer that our lives may over flow with love. How are you sharing the good news?
Advent also focuses on God’s commitment to bring the scattered together and lead us to the Promised Land. In a symbolic way that occurs each Sunday when we are moved to come to church and gather as the body of Christ. Have you invited someone to an Advent or Christmas services?
During Advent we are reminded of the full and complete sacrifice of Christ and how we are sanctified through that offering. During this season will hear the Magnificat and are reminded that we live in communion with Christ and with each other. We are blessed, our souls magnify the Lord and our spirit rejoices. How are you rejoicing this Advent?
Please come join us during our Advent Sunday worship and Christmas EVE at 5:30 pm and Christmas Day at 10 am.
