Advent Week 1

Yesterday we started our annual Adventure of Advent. This may not have much impact for those who aren't part of our congregation but our goals for this season is to have the Holy Spirit grow our hearts "three-sizes".

God's generosity has been apparent in our congregation for years but yesterday it was demonstrated wonderfully as 12 of you signed up to be involved in our outreach, [side-note: only 2 people forgot to put their names on the sheets]. Twenty-four percent of those present took this step of faith.

Don't forget to use the advent insert for seasonal scripture readings. Consider just a couple of verses from Monday's reading in John 1.
"From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ."
I was reminded by these that the blessings I have because of my talents, position, wishes or hard work. They are acts of God's grace poured out in Jesus.

Read, grow strong and feel free to comment and share your stories of how God's Advent is becoming an adventure for you.
