Here we are already beginning the Second Week of Advent!
We are moving closer to our celebration of the great Feast of Christmas.  Are you ready?  Are you getting ready?  Hopefully, we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas.  I don’t mean the commercial end of Christmas:  sending cards, buying gifts, baking cookies and decorating the tree.  These may be a part of Christmas.  They may help to enhance our Christmas celebration but they are not the center of our celebration this year or any year.
The center of our Christmas celebration is the fulfillment of God’s promise, the coming of Jesus Christ.  During Advent we are busy with many things.  But, we need to keep Christ at the very heart of our lives, our getting ready, our celebrations.
“Jesus is the reason for the season” and “Keep Christ in Christmas” are two slogans familiar to us.  What they state is certainly true.  Without Jesus Christ, there is no reason to celebrate.
As we continue our Advent journey, our pilgrim way in this life, may we not lose sight of Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Father.
Come Lord Jesus, Come!

Have a great Bethany Beach week!

 

In the fall of 2018 our parish will provide everyone an opportunity to sign up for The Journey, a six-week process of sharing, prayer, and reflection that can help everyone—active parishioner or not—grow in faith.

The Journey brings us into contact with those who knew and encountered Jesus.  Through videos and sharing, their experience becomes real in our day . . . in our personal lives . . . in our relationships with God and others.

We hope that many parishioners will sign up and help our parish grow in faith—so that more of our parishioners see themselves as followers of Jesus.
