What is the Hope of Advent?
We are on a journey toward Christmas. It is a season called Advent. It invites us to consider our callings as the people of God, to look inwardly and consider what distractions and issues need to be dealt with so that we can love God and love neighbor. In the spirit of Advent, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) offers a brief video message. It features, among others, the thoughts of Sharon Watkins, our General Minister and President, as well as, the elected leadership of the church. I invite you to watch, consider, and offer your own thoughts about the hope of Advent. What are your hopes for this coming year as we walk the path set before us. As John the Baptist shouted, taking his cue from Isaiah: "Prepare the way of the Lord: Make his paths straight." (Mark 1:3; Isaiah 40:3 CEB)
