Advent–Prepare

Enews December 6, 2018

 

Sunday we will light the Advent Candle for Peace and read Luke 3:1-6 about John the Baptist.  John prepared the way for Jesus, who in turn prepared the way for us.  I wonder: how are we preparing our hearts for Jesus today?

Growing up there was a book in my childhood church titled “If Jesus Came to My House.”  I don’t remember the whole story, but some images remain fresh in my mind.  Would we recognize Jesus?  If we knew Jesus was going to show up at our house at a specific time I wonder how we might prepare?

As we prepare for Christmas let us also prepare by sharing the love of God incarnate through our words and actions.

Happy Advent.

Blessings,

Pastor Amy
