Letter from The Rev. Lynn Sinnot

Dear Friends,

We are in the Season of Advent, and such hope surrounds this season, as we remember the promises of God and the depth of the love our Creator has for us.

The Incarnation continues to be a life-changing, world-changing, and even church-changing event.  This is the time to open our hearts, to submit all that we are to preparing the way of the Lord.

We would not welcome a guest into a home not lovingly prepared…. especially a guest who brings promises of redemption and peace.

In this holy season, my brothers and sisters, let’s give to God all that stands in the way of the fullness of our welcome to Jesus Christ.  Let’s examine our hearts and spirits and give up all that is unforgiving, all that is fearful, all that is bitter.  Let’s examine ourselves, ready ourselves, and offer this Christmas gift to the Infant —

…that we will trust in the Lord, step out from our comfort zones and into God’s will; that we will forgive the unforgivable and love the unlovable; that we will go where God is calling, even when that is a little scary; that we will trust that God will give us whatever we need to accomplish all that God is calling us to do.

In the love and peace of Jesus Christ,

Mother Lynn+
