Pastor Durant’s Letter

Hope, Faith, Joy, Peace & Love

As children we greatly anticipated the Christmas season.  The presents, the food, the break from school, and did I mention- the presents????  As adults we may or may not anticipate the holiday because of the bills that come from spending money we don’t have to buy gifts the kids don’t need.  Or it may be the great amount of work as lights and decorations go up, then come down within a few weeks.  Holiday stress often robs the joy of anticipating the birth of our Savior and what that means for us.  Let this Christmas be different as we PREPARE our hearts for His arrival in a new and fresh way.

Preparing our hearts for Christmas during this Advent season, allows us to more fully connect to the reason Christ came in the first place.  We, of all people, have the HOPE of eternal resurrection!  By FAITH we have this hope and with it comes a PEACE that only heaven can give.  People who live in peace have a JOY that the Holy Spirit gives and the overflow of LOVE spills out onto all people.  This is a win-win for everyone, including those who have not yet chosen to follow Jesus.

This Christmas season, I choose to prepare my heart by reading my Bible in such a way to experience Him more (btw-Advent Bible Reading Plan is on the Coastlands website or in the bulletin).  I also choose to keep the faith and walk in joy, peace, hope, and love even when I am under stress.  By God’s grace we will have the best Christmas ever!

PREPARE for a new encounter with Him!!
