Hello, NWPC family and happy advent!
Each time December rolls around on my calendar it seems as though I find myself wondering where the rest of the year has gone. The months pass, often times painfully slow, and it seems as though this happy season will never come. Yet here it is, December again, and I can hardly believe it.
I imagine that Mary and Joseph experienced a similar feeling during the wait for Jesus’s arrival. The slow and arduous passage of time, waiting for something to happen. Then suddenly the wait was over and forgotten, with the birth of a baby. The Savior!
During advent we observe this season of waiting, but we fill the time with celebrations of the birth of our savior. There are many activities going on this month in our church – card and ornament making, caroling, the children’s program, and our annual Christmas Eve service. I’m looking forward to spending this time with our youth and with many of you!
Peace and joy,
