We are moving into the season of Advent this Sunday. There are many messages that we see and hear this time of year in the days leading up to Christmas. It is sometimes hard to tune out all of the excess. You may be already overwhelmed by all that will take place in the next 27 days. I would invite you into a new space this year, or maybe you have already found it.
What story do you have to tell? From your life so far, the lessons you have learned. The traditions or special moments that you spent with family members during the Advent and Christmas season. In our culture, lots of people are sharing stories on social media, through television, and other technology. I am going to invite you to share our story, the birth of Jesus Christ and its impact on your life and our world.
So how do we help children, youth, and adults in our community find themselves within the Christmas story? Find some time where you can look into the eyes of another person and invite them to share some of their story. Then share part of your story and how Jesus Christ has made an impact on it.
I believe we have the best story in the world to share. This Sunday, December 2, we will host a Family Advent Breakfast in the Great Hall at 10:00 a.m. Children, youth, and adults are invited to join us to learn and remember the season of Advent and its meaning in our lives.
