A Message from Pastor Richard

“I  wait for the Lord; my soul waits,
   and in his word I hope”

            Advent is one of my favorite seasons of the year. In many ways, it epitomizes life as follower of Christ. We’re always waiting with expectant hope. We wait for the coming of God’s kingdom every day. We hope that God will usher in a better world. Until then, we are called to show God’s kingdom as Jesus did to us so long ago.

            This is also a season of busyness as we prepare for Christmas. The rush of the holiday season is all around us. The church is the busiest it is all year. It’s an exciting time! But in the midst of the busyness and excitement, we are called to pause as well.

            I went skiing this past Monday for my Sabbath to Breckenridge. This was my first time skiing in 15 years. Initially, I was quite nervous, but I knew the best way to get over that nervousness was just to start down that mountain. As I skied, I thought about the rush of life as I went down each slope, some of them very fast! Occasionally, though, I did stop. I took a few moments to catch my breath and appreciate my surroundings. The beauty of the snow-covered trees, the refreshing air, the smell of fresh snow, the light that occasionally came through the clouds. To do this was so centering.

            Advent is a time to pause in the middle of the rush. It’s a time to reorient ourselves so we can continue moving forward as God calls us. It’s a time to think about how Christ coming into the world has changed each of us. Let’s each take some time to breath and reflect this season. Because we don’t have to wait for Christmas morning for God’s light to come into the world. When we pause and watch, we’ll see that it’s already here among us.

May the love of God be with you all,

Pastor Richard

Love in Action

“Love in Action” is the Church of the Hills mission team.  The primary goal of the Love in Action Team is to serve the needs of others locally, nationally and internationally. The people of Church of the Hills are blessed with unique gifts; although the size of our congregation is smaller, sharing these gifts remains a vital part of our outreach ministry.

The “Love in Action” Committee will guide us to be Christ’s faithful Witnesses. As such, we will share a deep life of service, and participate in God’s mission to care for the needs of the sick, the poor, and the lonely to establish Christ’s just, loving, and peaceable rule in the world. 

 

Friday Features offers weekly updates and happenings at Church of the Hills. It’s a great way to stay in touch and up to date with our Ministries and our Community. To receive this weekly email, please sign up below.
