We are all asking, “What comes next?” There are many good responses to this question.

Advent is a season of waiting for the coming of God. With the weekly themes of hope, peace, joy, and love, we anticipate and attune ourselves to the reign of God embodied in Jesus. As we walk through this Advent season, you are invited to prayerfully notice the glimpses of Christ’s presence in your life and in this world God loves. Look for the characteristics of Christ present in the world: compassion, justice, tenderness, healing, restoration, and welcome of the least of these. Where we see “the least of these” cared for as described in Matthew 25, there we see Christ.
