Happy liturgical new year! Today is the first day of the church year, ushered in with the beginning of the Advent season, --four weeks of deep spiritual contemplation anticipating the celebration of Christmas. Advent is from an old Latin phrase – ad venio, loosely translated “until the coming.” It is a time for reflection during which we prepare for Christ’s coming. In order to prepare herself for the coming of the Christ-child, the Church asked Christ’s followers to use the four weeks prior to that to examine not so much their inner being – that would come in Lent – but the outer world. As disciples called to extend the reach of God’s love most fully expressed through Jesus – Advent became the occasion to assess whether or not such love was evident. As we prepare for Christ’s coming over the new few weeks, remaining true to this tradition, we will look for God’s love evidenced in Africa, Europe, Asia, Latin America and within our own community.
Let us worship our God, the God of hope, even when all seems hopeless. Let us find God’s love in our world today as we worship together in spirit, mind, and deed, and listen to the love of God.
