God calls us to open the door, make room at the table, and create spaces
to foster lasting relationships with Jesus Christ.
The season of Advent begins this Sunday, December 1. Advent is a season of preparation in which we make ourselves ready for the gift of the Christ child at Christmas. There are many facets and implications to this preparation. Beginning this Sunday, we will explore some of them. We will do so in sermons and in daily devotions.
Next Monday, I invite you to check your email or look on social media such as Facebook and Twitter for a daily devotional that ties into our Advent Attitudes theme. The theme of the first week will be readiness. It is my hope that these daily devotions will aid you in making your heart ready for the precious gift of our Lord Jesus Christ at Christmas.
Grace and Peace,
Paul B. Thompson
