It is as simple as that.
It begins at the beginning, long before the star or even the first birthing cry. It begins with a need, then a hope, then a vision; a messenger, an inkling, and then – then a long growing season – a journey toward light and life. As we gather this Sunday, we will begin an Advent collection that will grow in the coming weeks. This first Sunday everyone is invited to bring to their worship window something that is a space waiting to be filled – be it object, sign or symbol.
An empty manger.
A promise of new life.
A star in the dark. It is winter, and the Base Camp of our church community is warm. Let’s keep the gift of Sabbath; rest a bit together, and reflect, refuel, and refresh our sense of reverence.
