“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (John 3:16-17)

This Sunday morning - (the last before Christmas!) - we will be lighting the fourth candle in the advent wreath which serves to remind us of God’s incredible love for us.
To think of the God of the Universe, the creator of all things, lying in a manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes, in the care of a teenage girl is mind boggling to say the least.
What does this “advent” say about the nature of God’s love? What does it say about the human condition that this extreme measure is necessary?
In order to save us, God became one of us, tempted in every way as we are - yet without sin.
Please join me this Sunday morning as we celebrate the love of God as it is revealed to us through the incarnation of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
