Advent Reflections
Rev. Dr. Cindy Bacon Hammer, Chair, Board of Directors
It is Advent--my favorite time of the church year. For the Board of Directors that means budgets are put to bed, reports are finalized, and everything has been made ready for the next fiscal year. What is really lovely is that once these business items are taken care of, we can relax and enjoy the season. We prepare for Jesus' birth with decorations and beautiful lights. We sing together the familiar songs of the season. We read of the prophets of old who had been waiting for the Messiah to come. And, we give thanks. We thank God for coming to earth to meet us in human form. We thank God for hope, peace, joy and love. And, we thank God for the mystery and wonder that seem to make themselves known at this time of the year. Peace seems possible. Because of Jesus' birth we have reason to hope. We are filled with joy in the enormity of love found in a tiny babe born in a humble stable. May your Christmas be filled with wonder and gratitude.
