Dear Friends in Christ,

Are you rolling your eyes again! Christmas comes subtly and quicker each year.

Stop! We have forgotten one season! What does the church call the four Sundays prior to Christmas? What do we call this wonderful time when we scope out the ads and slowly cross off the people on our Christmas list? What an adventure!

Stop! That’s it! The Christian church call this season, Advent! Whether we are living in the northern snow belts hoping for blue skies or in the south and basking in the sun with our feet propped up drinking our favorite drink, blue is the color of the season.

Hope! Hope! Christmas comes soon! Hope! The Christmas feast doesn’t add too many pounds!

Hope! Plum pudding! Italian seafood extravaganza!

Hope! We don’t overlook the players in the first Advent! Elizabeth’s pregnancy! Zechariah’s period of silence! The angel’s visitation to Joseph! The preaching of John the Baptist! The fasting! The time for repentance!

Stop! What is this interim pastor writing about?

Yes, initially Advent was a time of fasting and repentance in preparation for the birth of the Messiah.

Irrelevant today!? The Jesse tree followed Jesus’ legacy to Bethlehem. The Advent wreath wheeled us around the scriptures and honed in on the birth of Jesus and the Christ candle.

Today we are two planets apart from the origin of Advent in the 6th century. Time to come back the coming season: Advent!

Stop! Who really is coming on Christmas?

Pastor Jack Williams
