It’s already the fourth week of Advent. The waiting is almost over. The Christ child comes into our lives once again. In truth, however, Christ comes into our lives each and every day – we just don’t always recognize him. Perhaps we could resolve to start looking for Christ in the new year.
I am wishing you a Christmas filled with the gifts of joy, love, and peace – the gifts that come from our gracious God – gifts that never break and are always the right size.
My time with you is nearing its end. Christmas Day will be the last worship service that I share with you. After that, my attention will turn to my ordination and my first call in Lubbock. As exciting as that is, there are also a long list of mundane and not-so-fun things to do, like packing boxes. I have enjoyed my time with you as I began to lean into the role of a full-time pastor, and I have learned much. I hope that you have been blessed by my presence here.
Remember that there is still one more Wednesday night soup supper and worship on December 21. Christmas Eve worship will take place on December 24 at 7:00 pm, and on December 25, we will worship at 10:00 as we always do. These are all wonderful opportunities to feel the presence of God in our lives during this holy season. Hope to see you there.
