Advent 2015

"God Is Love"

 

             The most important message that we can bring to the world      as authentic followers of Christ is that God is love.  God loves  everyone regardless of ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation,            socio-economic status, and religion. 

             Did you know that at one time parents neither wanted nor loved left-handed children and that such children were regarded as freaks and outcasts?  There was a time in our biblical history when people thought that God punished people with bad thunderstorms or earthquakes.  We have evolved from such outlandish beliefs.

             Our evolution has come a long way.  The earth is four billion years old.  About 100,000 years ago we evolved to a state of self-consciousness; it was at that time that people began to believe in God.   Then, 2,000 years ago, God sent his son.  Jesus was not only sent as a sacrifice for our sins, but as the greatest teacher in history.  By showing humanity unconditional love, Jesus taught us to do the same.  God is love. 

                 May you have a very Merry Christmas!
