HOPE - First week of Advent
This is the first week of Advent and as we move toward the day set aside for the birth of Jesus Christ, we are filled with Hope!
Hope this Christmas season is for good health! I am hopeful that we are learning to live with COVID, masks, social distancing and health passports. There is hope that, with vaccines, our health care workers will get some relief from their long days and hard work.
Hope this Christmas season is for a healthier planet! I am hopeful that we are learning how to care for the earth, that we can reverse some of the damage that has been done and slow down climate change. There is hope that the world leaders will work together to reduce our carbon footprints.
Hope this Christmas season is for a true awareness that every child matters! I am hopeful that we are learning to respect each person’s differences and that we are learning to look for our similarities. As we grow in knowledge of others and we turn to God to bless us with understanding of others, the new year will bring blessings to everyone.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Yours in Christ,
Gwyn, Kat, and Shannon
