12.29.21 Spiritual Toddlers: Discovering the Power of God’s Embrace

December 29, 2021

There is something extremely peaceful and life giving about holding a sleeping toddler in your arms, and the blessing goes both ways. It pleases God when we seek out that kind of peace and embrace in God's arms. With the coming of Christ, Emmanuel, we no longer need to journey to a specific place to receive this kind of embrace, because God is with those of us who have received Christ as Savior. Psalm 131-132; 1 Corinthians 6:19

12.24.21 Preparing to Remember: Exploring the True Meaning of Advent

12.24.21 Preparing to Remember: Exploring the True Meaning of Advent

December 24, 2021

The word advent refers to both the coming of someone or something of great importance and the advance preparation for that coming.  The irony of the Christmas season, which is also called the season of Advent, is that every year we prepare for a celebration for someone who has already come and who is already here. In essence, the season of Advent is really a time where we prepare our hearts in advance to remember what has already happened. Not only does God deserve this. We need it.

This preparation to remember echoes the sentiments of  Psalm 126, a Psalm of Ascent.  Psalm 126; Deuteronomy

December 18, 2021

It can feel so good to come home and rest after a rough day. God calls us to an even deeper rest that can only happen when we lean into God's presence. There is nothing more clarifying, calming, healing and centering than time spent in the presence of God. Psalm 122
