Advent is a season of preparation for the celebration of God’s incarnation. The season of Advent lasts for four Sundays leading up to Christmas. As a church, during Advent, we look back in celebration of Christ’s coming as a child, while at the same time looking forward in eager anticipation to the coming of Christ’s kingdom when he returns for his people.
In the true spirit of this season of waiting, the Division of Christian Education invites us to spend a little time in reflection. To help us in this vein the division has created and is pleased to offer 3 simple study guides to help us over these next 4 weeks. One dedicated to children, (with a little Christmas Day bonus), one dedicated to men and the third dedicated to women.
As we continue in our pursuit of Intentional Discipleship let us together seek to prepare ourselves to receive Christ anew and then go out to share the received Christ with others so as they receive they too will also share.
I invite us to visit the Diocesan website at www.anglicandioceseja.org and click on Resources.
It is my hope that the hope, peace, joy and love of this season will attend you.
