The pandemic has laid bare, and widened, economic disparity locally and globally.

As we enter the Advent season, how can our churches become houses where the Holy will be born anew–offering respite, sustenance and care, opening the doors ever wider to those seeking shelter from the onslaught of life? No one church can do it all, but each can do something.

As we study the biblical prophets that call us to care for our neighbors and “make room in the inn,” the lonely and frightened spaces within us are filled with the light of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.

Each week during advent we will explore these topics, beginning with the Hope for the first Sunday in Advent, followed by Peace, Joy and Love for subsequent Advent Sundays. Use this home devotional to supplement our weekly Advent Worship Services (; then join us for in-person or online worship throughout the Advent and Christmas Season, services are at 10 a.m. and plan to join us for a traditional Christmas Eve worship at 11 p.m.
