This past Sunday we began the season of Advent as we await the arrival of the Christ child, as we embrace the advent of Christ into our hearts and lives once again, and as we look to the return of Christ that is also promised. We pointed to Christ as our hope, but also that we are to be people of hope. As Christ came in the most unlikely of places, to the most unlikely of people, so Christ offered hope to the least likely among us – the Samaritan, the widow, the blind, the lame, the prodigal…even the dead. We too are to be people of hope, to offer hope to all people, at all times, in all places.

 This week we look to Christ as our Prince of Peace. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a home body. I like the security of familiar surroundings, of knowing where things are, a comfortable place to sit and relax. I like being home! This Sunday we turn to 2 Peter 3:8-15, where again we’re faced with the reality of Christ’s second coming, that the day of the Lord will come like a thief, but we’re also reminded of the way in which we are to live as we wait for that day. Are we leading lives of holiness and godliness? Are we living into the promise of a new home, with new heavens, and a new earth? Are we looking to Christ as our source of peace, with an assurance that when that day comes, we’ll be found without spot or blemish?

 As we continue our journey toward the manger, may we seek to live with holiness and godliness. May we find our peace in Christ and Christ alone. And may we rest in the assurance that we have in Christ for when He returns in final victory.

  Join us in person or online at either 9am (traditional) or 11:15am (contemporary).
