As Christ came to dwell among us, we too seek a place to dwell. You are welcome at any and all of our churches!
Advent and Christmas are a sort of homecoming. God found a new home among us in the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. God will find this home again in the second coming of Christ as we await that return. The dwelling places where we find Christ today can be in our mangers, surrounded by parents, shepherds, magi, and a variety of animals – also through the moves of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes those dwelling places can take us by surprise; sometimes those dwelling places can also be where we experience the most comfort and joy, where we truly belong in creation!
Where do we physically, mentally, and spiritually find ourselves as we make preparations for the coming of Christ?
