The season of Advent is quickly approaching

I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”

– Psalm 122:1

 

The season of Advent and the Festival of Christmas are upon us once again.  I thought this an especially appropriate time to write you in order to encourage you in the faith.  Unfortunately this can be a very hectic time of year as we attempt to meet everyone’s expectations of us.  Often we end up wearing ourselves out running after the things of this world, with little of the Light our Lord brought when He entered this sin-darkened world.

The message of Advent and Christmas is that our Lord comes to bring us together with Him and one another by speaking His Word to us and by gathering us together at His Supper.  Real life and Light are not found in the things of this world but in our Lord Jesus Christ and the life He has given us to live together.

I look forward to receiving the Lord’s Gospel gifts with you this season.
