Rev. Cheryl's Message for December 17, 2017 Welcome! The dark days of December have an effect on the creatures of the earth, including humans. The longer nights and shorter days take many of us into hibernation mode. We want to eat more, sleep more, do less in a month that demands we go out more and get more done! Its a paradox that many of us experience and that increases the stress with which we live. Some of us feel the lack of light so much that it affects our moodseasonally affected disorderand we experience depression. We need the suns light and long for the days to lengthen. From mid-December spring seems a long, long time away. The winter solstice is a needed hint of what it to come.
Thats why the imagery of light in the midst of darkness is so powerful. It holds the hope of what it to come. Our Jewish brothers and sisters are now celebrating Hanukaha festival of lightsthat reminds them of Gods unfailing provision in times of oppression. We light the candles of the Advent wreath to mark the coming of the light of Christa light that shines in the darkness of this world and that cannot be overcome. Christs light in our lives provides hope on dark days, peace in troubled times, joy in the midst of sorrow and love when we have failed. Who doesnt need that?
Rev. Cheryl's Message for December 24, 2017Welcome! Here we are on the eve of Christmas anticipating the celebration of our Lords birth. We will hear the laughter of children, the singing of carols and the joyous sounds of people greeting one another. We will see the vibrant colour of Christmas finery, the rich reds of poinsettias, the flickering light of the Christ Candle and the timeless image of the crèche. We will taste the bread and wine of our Christmas Communion and draw into ourselves the presence of our Lord. All that will happen tonight!
But this morning, we will take time to hear the promise in the readings of the fourth Sunday of Advent. We will light the fourth candle of the Advent Wreath that marks the time we have been preparing for Christs advent among us. And we will take time to pray. We will pray for those who work this day and keep watch this night so that we may celebrate in peacefor first responders, nurses and doctors; for police officers and firefighters; for emergency personnel. We will pray for those working the last hours of retail and food servicesproviding for those who need one last gift or a good meal. We will pray that all might find in these days the gifts of the Christ Childhope, peace, joy and love! A blessed Christmas to you all!
