Advent is a season of preparation. We all prepare in our lives the coming of Christmas. We decorate our homes, we look for Christmas recipes, we shop for Christmas presents and wrap them. And, of course, we all have holiday parties to go to. In the midst of all of this, it can become difficult to take a break and prepare oneself for the moment of joy during Christmas.
The roots for celebrating Christmas are lying the miraculous message that God became one of us through the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This is not just a fun story to narrate but a story that expresses our hope that God is always around us and surrounds us.
This Advent season, we invite you to join us to dream your hopes of how this God among us can look like for you. Take yourself an hour of time each week and relax and reflect on your hopes and dreams by joining us on Sunday mornings to listen to the stories of love and hope, accompanied by sections of Händel’s Messiah, performed by our Chancel choir.
