On the Journey...
(Weekly insights from FMC Leaders)
November 30, 2016
You might wonder why observe Advent when the story of Jesus’ birth is so familiar. Well, Advent is a time of discovering something new and challenging regarding the purpose God has for the world. In reading the story, we learn that the time of Christ was dark and unsettled. There was despair, fear, conflict and misguided expectations. This is not so different from our world today. If the election season is any indicator, there is still despair, fear, hate, prejudice, anger and misguided expectations. Advent gives the followers of Jesus to refocus on our purpose in a culture that gives mixed messages about the Christmas season. So, we have a purposeful reason to observe Advent. We are being invited to live in expectation and discover what it means to, Walk in God’s way of Peace, Harmony, Healing and Restoration. Thus, we can say with joy, “COME LORD JESUS”!
