“Christmas Is Coming”

For the month of December, the emphases at First United Methodist may be a tad different than we may be hearing and seeing in advertisements and at shopping malls. For Christians, the day of the Lord is coming. Christmas is a vivid reminder that not only has Christ come as a little child, but Christ comes again to fulfill the promise of God’s realm on this earth. Advent is our season to prepare for this realm – where war will cease and people will walk in God’s ways. As we prepare, we are called to be ready – to enter God’s house, to worship, to pray, to walk in Christ’s light, and to live as children of light. In doing so we usher in God’s new world, the realm of hope and promise that Christ offers to this earth and its peoples.
