It is that time (chronos) of year when we turn the calendar to a new year. We can look back at the past or contemplate the future. What experience would we change if we could? What experience do we want to hold fastly in our hearts forever? The latter speaks to KAIROS.
Last Advent, hopefully, we all experienced (kairos) time. That time in which we were lost in the awe of God's gift for each one of us. It is the time in which we cry out with joy for the love sent to us in the presence of Jesus, The Christ. Here at First Christian Church, there are many ways to experience kairos. Get involved in Gods work! Get out of your box! (Remember Peter getting out of the boat!) Give of your God given talents, time and resources. Go to a bible study or prayer partners. Share the "Word of Truth" with others you encounter.
Give back a portion of the love in which God has extended to you.
Lastly, many thanks for the cards, comments, prayers for me and my family in the loss of my mother, Rosalee, on Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving. They have given me GREAT comfort.
