Welcome to Advent


In those days Judah shall be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell in safety; and this is the name by which she shall be called: the LORD is our righteousness.  Jer.33:16   (NASB)

Advent is really cool. It’s the time of year when we are challenged to be divided, in several ways.

First, to look back at Jesus’ birth, and to look forward to His return.

Secondly, to rekindle that birth in our own hearts, yet striving toward maturity.

And thirdly, to keep our eyes on the manger, not on the gifts of the magi.

May this Advent season, be for you and your family, a life changing experience.

And may Yahweh Tsidkenu– the Lord our righteousness, be your righteousness now and forever.

Amen.

  5. I didn’t even know what Advent was before this year. What a beautiful time of the year. I believe I will look forward to it from now on and I’m enjoying the newly created tradition in my family – the advent wreath.

  6. Well Amber, we had heard the term and candles were lit each Sunday, but other than that we didn’t know what it was either.
    We did our Advent wreath last year for the first time, and what a difference it made for the whole Christmas experience.
    Bless you and your family through this Advent season.
