ADVENT & CHRISTMASTIDE

A season of preparation and a time for new beginnings

A Holy Season ADVENT & CHRISTMASTIDE The Beginning of the Christian Year Advent (the four Sundays before Christmas) and Christmastide are seasons of preparation and a time for new beginnings. Have you been nursing a grudge against a Christian brother or sister? This season is a time for warmed hearts and reconciled relationships. It’s been too long. Let go of the hurts and the heartaches. Don’t take them into a new year. Let go. Receive the peace God will give. These sacred seasons are a time for Coming Home. Coming home to God and His Church. If God is our Father then the Church must be our mother (Origen). Come and be healed and enter into the joy of your Master. We are opening the Church (The Lord’s House of Prayer) for times of personal reflection and humble prayer. Come and meet with God in the silence of your own heart and in the warmth of His house of prayer. Let this Christmas become a season of peace and restoration instead of a season of frenzy and busy. “Come to me and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
