“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

[Matthew 22: 37-40]

Greetings Morgan Church of the Nazarene!

 

Advent Hope. Currently, we are in "hope week" of the Advent season. We have true hope when we put our trust fully in the God who is faithful. Our Hope leads us to surrender, and our surrender leads to our formation. Advent is about waiting, yes, but more than that, about preparing. We allow God to form us into the image of Christ so that we are a people prepared for the coming of our Lord.

 

This Sunday: This Sunday we shift from "Hope" to "Peace." The Peace of Christ is something we often long for in the chaos of our lives. We are called to be peacemakers in our world even as we live in the Peace of Christ. Sometimes these two things seem to be in conflict with one another.

Prayer Guidance this week: "The Prayer of Saint Francis"  (singular pronouns changed to plural, that we may pray it together)

"Lord, make us instruments of Thy peace;

Where there is hatred, let us sow love;

Where there is injury, pardon;

Where there is error, truth;

Where there is doubt, faith;

Where there is despair, hope;

Where there is darkness, light;

And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, Grant that we may not so much seek

To be consoled as to console;

To be understood as to understand;

To be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."

Advent: The season of Advent is a season of waiting and preparation for the coming of Christ. As God's people waited long ago for the coming of the Messiah, we wait today for the second advent. But our waiting is not doing "nothing." As we wait we make sure we are prepared for when Christ comes again in the fullness of his Kingdom! As a church we are working through the book, Come, Peasant King. If you did not pick one up yet, we will have additional copies available Sunday.

 

Grace & Peace,

Pastor Kent
