During the season of Advent, we prepare ourselves to receive the presence of God and the birth of Christ. It is a time intended for reflection, to reflect upon the gift we received at the first Advent and to look to the future with anticipation of Christ’s return.
This year, Christ Church staff has turned our attention to the words of Popes, Presidents, and Peace Prize Winners. Some of these words, spoken in times of distress, offer us wisdom as we navigate a world that often feels unsteady. They remind us of the many blessings and joys of this life, even in the midst of hardship. It is our hope that as you read these reflections and prayers, you will be comforted with new hope as you look to the future.
With Advent Hope,
Rev. Leslie Houseworth-Fields
