“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” -Acts 20:24

Dearly Beloved

Greetings in the name of our Incarnated Lord Jesus Christ. We have reached the end of 2021. This year has been a time of long struggles for the world. New paths of survival were paved in the face of an epidemic. New norms and normal were formed. The truth is that it is our attitudes that create us, even when new situations arise.

“I am not a product of my circumstance. I am a product of my decisions” Stephen Covey

Advent is a very important time for the Christian faith. It is the joy of the incarnation of God. For the Eastern churches December 1 is the beginning of 25 days lent. This is the season of waiting for the birth of Christ. During this time the Church prepares herself through cleansing and renewal forthe advent of her Lord.

“The Lord did not come to make a display. He came to heal and teach suffering men” Athanasius of Alexandria.

First Sunday of December church meditating the nativity of John the Baptist. Circumstances of his birth, as recorded in the New Testament are miraculous. His birth was a special event in the preparation for the coming of Jesus and a pivotal figure in the salvation history of God. Second Sunday theme is the Annunciation to Joseph. The power of God moves Joseph to leave his own security to travel God’s plan. Joseph is a model of genuine humanly virtues. He was a righteous man- obliged by Law, filled by Mercy & guided by Revelation.

Third Sunday is the Sunday before the Christmas. First chapter of Gospel of John teaches about How is Divine related to human? How does the omnipotent deal with the vulnerable? What is the relationship of the Creator with the created? How does the infinite interact with the finite? John introduced Jesus the savior as “the Word” (1:1) “the Creator of this World”(1:3) “the Life”(1:4)and “the Light”(1:7). Fourth Sunday meditating the Glorious coming of our Lord. Jesus’ purpose in talking about his return is not to reveal a particular date but to warn us to be prepared. As a community of hope, we should be watching for the Lord and preparing for the Lord.

God Bless You

Yours in Christ
