December brings our Advent Season when we prepare for the birth of our Lord and when we expectantly prepare our hearts for Christ’s Second Coming. I think it’s much easier for us to wrap our minds around getting ready to celebrate Christmas than it is to prepare for Jesus’ Second Coming, and that’s all right. As we prepare for either or both, what we are doing is setting our minds on God and God’s love for all of creation as opposed to setting our minds on ourselves. Indeed, these preparations are very good as we focus more on God and less on ourselves.
I want to thank you for all of your active engagement in the life of Ascension & Holy Trinity. Together, we are the body of Christ in a world that needs to see Jesus’ Second Coming through what we do and say as a faith community. We have come a long way together, and I’m excited to see what our new church year will bring for us. I’ll see you in the pews and on the streets!
In God's Grace,
