Advent is upon us, Pt.2
20/12/12 19:58 Filed in: Advent
Merry Christmas, friends. We will soon be sharing in the mystery of all that this season represents . And we do live in a bit of a mystery, no? The mystery of knowing Him in the midst of deep darkness and pain, the mystery of touching the never-ending love of God, the mystery of walking this life in the Spirit, and the mystery of knowing a deep and lasting joy.
Can we lift our heads and hands this Christmas as we process our grief over the events in Newtown, CT.? Ann Voskamp’s blog entry, “Where Is God When Bad Things Happen?” helps me process the mix of emotions. Please read:Where Is God When Bad Things Happen?
And we find that Christ is still worthy of our worship. We find that Christ is worthy of our “all” again.
As you celebrate this advent I’d like to invite you to come and worship with us at Christ Community Church in Charlottesville this Sunday, December 23rd, where I’ll be leading worship with my dear friend, violinist Madi Vest. “Come, let us worship and bow down … let us kneel before our Lord and Maker. And give Him our most excellent of praise.”
I do sincerely wish you a Merry Christmas.
