“Advent season offers a surge of creative energy,”
says Pastor Judy, one of our retired pastors who is offering a video each week of Advent, for a discussion around Mark’s gospel (Dec 1,8,15,22).
Advent season, which are the weeks after Thanksgiving that lead us up to Christmas, is indeed a time when creative energy is expended as we actively wait. I see many people surging with creativity as they prepare light displays on the outside of their homes. Decorate the inside of their homes with trees and stockings and much, much, more! Creative energy goes into the exchange of thoughtful Christmas letters and photos, cut out cookies and even more creative energy put into gift purchases and wrapping. Go ahead and be creative! But don’t forget the message the season of Advent points to. Don’t forget the promises of God’s Son taking on flesh to live among us. Advent is filled with the energy of Christians exercising their hearts, sharpening their minds and preparing for Christ’s coming.
At Christ the King some creative energy ways we connect with the Advent surge:
Advent is a surge of creative energy and I hope you will be part of the energy that helps bring God’s love to life in the many ways we prepare for Jesus’ birth 😊
