Advent—preparing the Inn

Through all of life’s challenges, the one constant is change! No matter the joys or sorrows, the ease or effort, time keeps moving onward. Once again, we find ourselves at the threshold of a new Church year. Advent 2020 is here and invites us into a deeper journey with God.

Advent is an experience to be engaged in. It’s an opportunity to intentionally unwrap the gift of Christmas—discovering God’s Word taking flesh, asking to dwell within us anew.

How will you prepare your heart, your life for this priceless gift? How will you make room in your inn for the Christ child?
