Monday Musings (12/3/12)

Dear Church Family,

Welcome to a new church year.  This past Sunday we celebrated the first Sunday in the Season of Advent.  Advent always begins a new church year.  We talked about Christ  being our Hope.  We looked at the hope that was and we looked at the hope that is to come.  The hope that was is found in the manger as the Son of God comes as a babe.  The hope that is to come is the Son of God coming again.  We don’t know the hour or the day but we know he is coming.  We are called to wait expectantly for his coming.  If we are going to wait expectantly then we need to be prepared.  As a Boy Scout I learned long ago what it means to be prepared.  It means having everything you might need so that you can deal with any situation that might arise.  The everything we need is found for us a Christians in Christ.  He is our all in all.  Are you ready for him?  He is coming…..Be Prepared!

Along the Journey,

Pastor Jude
