Preparing for THE Arrival
We find ourselves less than a month from the Celebration of Christmas. The days grow darker sooner and our pace seems to quicken. Plans for Christmas shopping and Christmas meals race through our minds. As we prepare for arrival of friends and family, we ask that You prepare us for THE arrival. Just as Joseph and Mary were prepared for the arrival of Jesus through encounters with angels, prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate His birth. Prepare our souls to glorify the Lord. Prepare our spirits to rejoice in God our Savior. Prepare our hearts to overflow with love, peace, hope, and joy. Prepare our minds to worship in this season of advent. Prepare us to celebrate the arrival of Jesus the Christ. Amen.
Revs. Darrell and Robin Scott
"God with us" explodes the myth that God is distant and uncaring . He is with us in our worst, working for something better.
