God of Hope
One of the joys the Advent this year has been the Advent Candles that many of our younger church family members were gifted. Each day of Advent they were introduced to one of the many names for God in Christ.
So here we are on the verge of our celebration of that great name we give to Jesus, Emmanuel – ‘God with us’. The Christmas story we are going to tell again is about God revealed in a person, living among us – one of us, and known through relationship.
As a church family we are about spend time with many who are not sure about that relationship. It may be time spent in church services at which we welcome again those who are making their annual visit to church! It may also be that we will be spending time in the company of those who do not share or appreciate our faith…
How might we be Jesus to them? Moreover, might we allow ourselves to be surprised at how Jesus meets us in them?
May you find God in Christ with you this Christmas!
