MINISTER's MESSAGE


This Sunday is Reign of Christ Sunday. It is the last Sunday of the church year. So next week we start our journey to Bethlehem. When we prepare for Christmas we go shopping. There are gifts to buy, menus to plan, special baking to be done. Add to that getting a tree and pulling out all the decorations. By Christmas Eve we are sometimes frazzled. Maybe do something different So what do we do in our faith life to prepare for a gift so special that it changed the world. A small child born that caused a revolution of the Spirit. So start making a list and checking it twice. Open your body to giving and receiving hugs Open you mind to those around you suffering Spend some time singing Spend some time reflecting on what changes you want to make in your life Play with a child Play with an animal Bake some cookies and deeply enjoy the odor of cooking dough Bake some cookies with a child…even better Send some love letters Call some shut-ins Visit a cranky older person This is a long list. You do not have to do anything on this list. But these kinds of actions can actually make you feel good inside. Pick one and bring Christmas home to your heart.
