What are you longing for?

This time of year we sing, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”. (click here to listen) because it’s time to acknowledge our longing, our hopes, our dreams, our descent into darkness and our desire for the light.

Who is the light?

Jesus is the light.

And he’s coming. Yes, Christmas is coming. But, Christmas is so much more than ribbons, packages, boxes or bags (thank you Grinch). Christmas is the light.

And getting ready for the light, waiting for the light and hoping for the light is Advent. Advent is the season in the church year before Christmas. We might have a lot to do this time of year, but stopping to celebrate Advent will enrich our Christmas. It might be just listening to an Advent playlist or reading a weekly devotion. It might be lighting candles. It might be reading a daily devotion. Or it might be just taking a few moments of silence here and there. Whatever it is, it will touch your heart with the light of Christ. We all need that.

Below is a list of Advent resources.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 for the First Sunday of Advent. We gather to praise and thank God and hear a word from the Word. We’ll be looking for you.

Advent blessings,

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the
images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think
its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers
and both show the same results.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site
could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Superb blog!

Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I
provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My website
is in the very same niche as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from
a lot of the information you provide here. Please let
me know if this okay with you. Many thanks!
