Advent 2022

Advent is the season to WAKE UP! A wake-up call to live fully, to live with the assurance that Jesus has come to us personally, collectively, and to our earth. Advent is not just as we prepare for December 25th, the anniversary of Jesus’ birth, and a lovely celebration this is. Advent reminds us of Jesus’ presence with us NOW and every day.

Our God has chosen not to be remote, inaccessible, unapproachable, but at one with us. Yes, God chose to take on flesh in human form as Jesus of Nazareth, who took on humanity, to be at one with us!  This is Incarnation, Emmanuel, God With Us.

Friends, God continues to be incarnated, to be WITH us. And God’s incarnation is happening all around us including in and through each of us as we embody and offer God’s presence each in our own unique ways. Yes, Advent is the season we Wake Up to this miracle.
