Friends of The Good Shepherd,
On Sunday we begin the Church Season of Advent, which also marks the beginning of a new church year. During Advent we focus on the longings of our hearts for God’s presence and action in our lives. At the beginning of Advent we focus on our hopes that God’s Kingdom will one day be fully accepted and lived out in this often troubled world of ours; that God’s justice will prevail. We finish Advent with the hopes which are fulfilled in birth of our Savior.
Let us take time during the Season of Advent to recognize where we need a Savior in our lives. Let us pray for deliverance from our fears and concerns of life. And let us hope in Jesus, trusting in him as we follow The Way of life he has shown us. For he is the light of the world.
