Advent: Journey Toward Joy

Advent-CandlesAdvent season is a journey toward joy, a time of preparation that too often gets consumed by our busyness, until we risk missing the heart of the Christmas celebration.  For this season, we’ll couple the rich traditions from Luke’s gospel with a treasured section of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian Christians. As Luke retells the stories concerning the events leading up to the birth of Jesus, Paul will remind us how we live the hope, joy, love, peace and light of Advent and Christmas.
