FROM THE PASTOR
This Sunday marks the beginning of a new liturgical year with the Season of Advent. This hope-filled season points us to the Lord who will come to us at the end of time. The gospel message continues a theme of watching and being prepared that marked the gospels of the past few weeks. But the emphasis is a little different. During Advent, the coming of the Lord points us to have hope in God who will restore things to the way God wanted the them when he first created the havens and the earth. The watching and preparation of Advent is filled with hope for deliverance from present evils and trials.
With so much angst in the world with the pandemic and uncertainties of the future, a message of hope is exactly what we need to hear. This is the good news that the human heart wants to hear. Let us journey together this Advent and await the coming of the Lord.
As mentioned in my letter last week, we still need people to participate in our Giving Tree program which has been revised due to COVID restrictions. Instead of buying presents, we are looking for people who are willing to purchase gift cards. There are still people in need who could use your generosity this Christmas season. Stop by the display in the narthex to learn more of how you can help.
I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving in spite of all the COVID restrictions.
