Advent Reflection

”The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness a light will shine…. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.” Isaiah 9: 2-7

What amazing words to contemplate at this time of year, especially with all that is
taking place in our country. This is the time of year when we as Christians remember
the birth of Jesus – the prophesied Prince of Peace, God incarnate – who came to
earth as a vulnerable baby with the ultimate purpose of dying on a cross to redeem
humanity and bring Isaiah’s prophesy to full fruition. The time of Advent leading up
to Christmas is our opportunity to remember Jesus’s birth and prepare for his return
in glory. I urge you to use this time wisely. Happy preparations and a joyful, blessed
Christmas.
