Message from the Minister

Advent is a time of quiet preparation for the coming again of God's Child Jesus into our lives.

It is a time of reflection, of preparation, and of hope.

It is a time of peace and of solitude, before the rush of Christmas Day.

It may be important for us to put aside the busyness of the season, and to focus upon the gifts of our Creator, the stillness of the night, the lovely sunrise, the beauty of a new snowfall.

I would like to share a prayer with you,

Beginning Advent in Quietness.

Today our God, may you grant us the grace to be still so that we might receive your voice, ever flowing, like a river deep within us.  Quiet our restless hearts, filled as they may be, with sadness and concern.  And calm our roving, runaway minds as we pray.

We bring you to our living:  the only offering fit to bring - tarnished and worn, polished and bright, those times when the flame of life has shone brightly, those times when the storms of life have threatened to blow it out.

We bring to our world: in all its hope, in all its despair, in all its promise so in need of your love.  Journeying God, as we trek once more down the Bethlehem path, we know the city of your love is our destination, but the way is sometimes uncertain.

And so, we give thanks that you journey with us.  And that we might see you in one another along the way, until we make our home with you.  Amen.

(Rot Root, Gathering, The United Church of Canada, 209-2020)

May we know love, peace, hope and joy in this Advent Season.

Reverend Kathleen Mowat
