Advent

Advent is a season, ofpreparation, it is a time to prepare our hearts for the arrival of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Advent
means coming. Advent is a time to watch for Jesus’ birth. It is a time to rededicate our lives to Christ. It is a time to prepare
for the day Christ shall return and gather us unto himself. Advent begins on the 4th Sunday before Christmas and ends at
sunset on Christmas Eve. We read in the Old Testament where many of the prophets expressed their confidence and
expectation that God was going to act in a very special way to set men free. Those prophets were expecting a
Messiah. Messiah means redeemer, deliverer, and leader. Jesus was the fulfillment of that expectation.

There are many lonely, forgotten people in our community. May this Advent season be a time to reach out with friendship,
love and care to these people. May this Advent season be a time when we as a community, are drawn more closely together in
Christian love. Out of this love, may we serve the Christ as never before.

“O, Holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels,
The great glad tidings tell,
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel.”

Pastor Paul McNall
