CHRISTMAS AND A NEW YEAR

 

Peace and rest in the midst of turmoil

 

It's Advent and we're approaching Christmas. Through all of the busyness of the season, may we carve out meaningful space and time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Without His birth, we couldn't have His death and resurrection.
In the midst of political and economic turmoil, and other storms that come our way, may we find peace and rest in Christ. Despite what the newspapers and daily newscasts tell us, God is still in charge.
And as we roll into 2018, may we face the new year with a strong sense of peace and hope ... in our spiritual lives, our family life and our careers.
Take a break from work. Focus on family, friends and worship.
