A Word From the Pastor

A Word From the Pastor
Pastor, Rev. Heather Kattan

This advent we are going on a journey to awaken ourselves to the presence and calling of Jesus all around us. Even though we might feel busy with all the activity around the holiday season, we can still miss the everyday appearance of hope, love, joy, and peace. This advent we will be focusing on reclaiming those moments in our daily lives so that we can feel like we are thriving, rather than merely surviving. The journey that we take is full of little steps forward, and each day we seek to improve on the last. Even a misstep can be a place to learn if we shake away the guilt and judgment.

We come together to celebrate and to remember the coming of Jesus Christ into our lives so that we can have a grounding for the rest of the season. All of the festive moments of feasting together and giving gifts build on that presence in our lives. Where are you seeing that hope, love, joy, and peace in your own lives? Perhaps even more revealing, where are you missing that hope, love, joy, and peace? Come and celebrate advent and Christmas with us, and open your eyes to the way that Jesus is all around us.

In Christ,
Pastor Heather
