First week in advent

Advent. Four Sundays and a midnight clear, a season of preparation, expectation, connection. A season of dreaming of Christmas to come and recalling Christmas past. A time for resolution, for forgiveness, for peace, for finding quiet and reflection amidst the world’s demands. A time for finding joy and a time for fining ways to bring the love, trust, and creativity of the season through the days and years to come.
