This is the irrational season
It may seem irrational in these days to have hope or to believe that we may yet recover and move forward as a country and nation. But as Christian, as people who hold vigil at the foot of the cross and outside the tomb, we are prepared for times such as this with the most radical of actions for these days…the action of hope. A hope that does not just sit and pray and wait, but a hope that moves, carries others with us and finds its way to Bethlehem. All the Bethlehem’s of the world…places of the unexpected appearance of God.
As Advent begins, your church has been hard at work helping each of us to find hope and meaning in these days. From Advent Care packages to meaningful worship, from social distanced gatherings to Zoom conversations, from continued care for the vulnerable in our midst to “Christmas” adapting our property, it is our hope and aim that we experience the coming Christ fully this year. Hope beyond reason, it’s what so much of the Biblical promises rest on. I hope you will join in, take part, sign up, and decorate your home sanctuaries in this same spirit.
You are loved and we are blessed to have one another in these days.
