Greetings Advent travellers.
With the news this week from Premier Ford there are so many mixed feelings it’s hard to put a finger on just one. Sorrow, confusion, fear, overwhelm and perhaps so much more.
Then, the news that Christmas Eve will bring lots and lots of rain and possibly the freezing kind. Plans are holding well right now. We’ll see how the day goes. This is the very real and earthly reality.
My first Christmas in Ministry was during the last big ice storm that hit the GTA and area, December 2013. All my plans and nervousness of the first Christmas came to an end when the ice storm and damages caused power outages and church steps that were not manoeuvrable.
There are many reasons worship services are cancelled. However, being Christians is not cancelled. As followers of Christ we know what we have to do.
We give. We love. We shed light in the darkness. We read the scriptures and sing our carols – in the safety of our homes. In these seemingly bleak times may we find the light of Christ in our hearts to shine for one another. Enjoy this familiar carol.
We are one – in Christ. Through rain, or snow or – well you know how that goes.
Worship on dear Advent travellers. Worship on.
