This is a cheater's way of getting caught up on our blog! We are hoping to get some pictures posted soon of the newly completed Eluklom Church of the Nazarene where our District Assembly was held the first part of November.
We were blessed to share the first Sunday of Advent with two of our Nazarene congregations. Then in the evening, we attended an international Christian gathering to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season. We were reminded of the darkness of those days just before Christ was born on earth. These verses from Colossians 1 captured our attention and led us to glorify the LORD for his wonderful gift to us: “…the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the saints. To them (you and us) God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (26-27).” What a marvelous message we have been given to carry to those in the darkness – a message filled with hope, light, and life!
May the Lord reveal the beauty and reality of his coming in fresh, new insights as we celebrate Jesus!
Have a blessed Christmas!
