There is no grace or faith without God’s love for the world

The Church is composed of people redeemed by the Son of God, brought together by the will of God to live together as the family of God, in order to do the work of God! (David J Hokes)

In eastern Christian tradition and in Spanish speaking communities, while the birth of Christ is celebrated on December 25, the arrival of the Magi is celebrated on January 6 and called the Feast of Epiphany. This feast is in Orthodoxy celebrated with even more magnificent festivities and church services than Christmas.
Yet, most western lectionaries incorporate this celebration.

Perhaps you feel you received the short end of the stick when it comes to gifts, talents and making a difference? If you feel like this at the beginning of a new year, take heart - God has good news for you for 2018. God has good news for you if you seek to experience his dream for you this year.

Remember that excuses cannot redeem us from what is against the will of God.
Only Jesus Christ redeems!

We must not overlook Luke 2:19, even though it is a small, silent verse “hiding” amongst so many grand stories about Christmas.
Luke 2: 19 teach an important lesson.  We read there:  But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart”.

The Season of Advent is the first Season of the Christian Calendar.
During the four Sundays before Christmas – we remember that Jesus came to our world as a babe, that he is coming into our lives, churches and communities today - and that he will return to our world on the Day of the Lord.

It is a good tradition to celebrate “Christ the King” on the last Sunday of the Christian calendar, the Sunday before the first Advent celebrated 4 weeks before Christmas.  The final conclusion of preaching, teaching and celebrations is this:  Christ the King is the fulfilment of God’s promises and the ultimate outcome of the gospel.

For this glorious gift of love and unity and for all our privileges received by the grace of God, we ought to live lives filled with gratefulness.

The results of living a self-seeking, self serving life are before us all the time:  unbearable stress about our jobs, neglected marriages and families, few if any real friendships and the nagging sense at the back of our minds that none of what we do, is really making any difference.
