The Advent Awakening: Happy New Year! But it’s not January 1, you say. No doubt most, if not all, of us are eagerly looking forward to a better 2021. For seekers and followers of Jesus we need not wait till January 1, for the new year begins now, with Advent. Mark your calendars because hope is on the horizon! The time is coming in which we will see the end of all things broken and the beginning of all things made new. That is the hope found in Jesus and his promise to return. Gather with family, friends, and neighbors and join us this advent of awakening with anticipation to our future hope and help us reprioritize and step into this new year with renewed faith in light of the miracle of Christmas when Christ was born.
