Season of Advent and Christmas
The focus of the entire season of Advent is preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus the Christ in his First Advent, and the anticipation of the return of Christ the King in his Second Advent. Advent is far more than simply marking a 2020 year old event in history. It is celebrating a truth about God, the revelation of God in Christ whereby all of creation might be reconciled to God. That is a process in which we now participate, and the consummation of which we anticipate. Scripture readings for Advent will reflect this emphasis on the Second Advent, including themes of accountability for faithfulness at His coming, judgment on sin, and the hope of eternal life. As we rejoice in raising our voices, "Joy to the World the Lord has Come," I wish you peace and joy of Christmas Season. May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, and goodwill in spite of Covid-19. May we pray to Infant Jesus with strength and courage that may the Scientists and Doctors find the right vaccine for this Virus and let the New Year 2021 be full of contentment and joy.
