Looking for a place to worship for Christmas?
The People of the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer welcome you to join us!
Good news seems to be in short supply as we move from Advent into Christmas this year. From the unprecedented increase in violence in this and other countries to the personal trials so many individuals have experienced in the last year, it often feels like doom and gloom is our new normal. We may think that this is unique to human history, but it really is not. Suffering, tragedy, and death are part of the human condition.
Each year at Christmas we remind ourselves and the whole world that God keeps God's promise that suffering, tragedy, and death will not have the last word. The promise was fulfilled in an unlikely way when a baby was born to a poor, unmarried couple in a cave in Bethlehem. God continues to appear when we least expect it and often when we most need it. Instead of focusing on the bad news surrounding us, may we open our eyes to see where God is coming anew among us in this sacred season. We will once again be celebrating Christmas with our neighbors from First Lutheran Church.
