We wait in joyful hope.
Advent is the season of waiting.
We wait for light.
We wait for hope.
We wait for the certainty that God has come to dwell among us and will come again.
This Advent, commit to making room in your heart for God. Grow in relationship with God, offer your burdens and distractions to the care of the Lord, and join in as the whole church waits in quiet anticipation.
