Advent 2016 celebrates the arrival of Jesus Christ, the embodiment of God’s heart. Our invitation this year is to walk in the way of God’s heart. The “way of God” has a double meaning of walking like someone else walks and walking as a journey or pilgrimage. Either usage invites worshipers to consider God’s heart as the emanating energy which creates the kingdom of God. When we walk in the way of God’s heart, we are co-creating the reign of God here on earth.
On the first Sunday of Advent, November 27, Ric Hudgens of our pastoral staff will be our speaker.
