On this first Sunday of Advent, we woke up to our first snow of the year!
During online church, I lit our first advent candle, representing hope, in remembrance of the prophets, especially Isaiah, who foretold the birth of Christ. It represents the expectation felt in anticipation of the coming Messiah!
I'm sure we all can use some hope this year! Hope that the pandemic will be over. Hope that our lives can resume soon. Hope that our loved ones will stay well. Hope for a ray of light in this difficult season.
Over 2000 years ago, a baby came to bring the greatest hope of all to this world. He is still our hope today!
