What better advent gift can we give ourselves and those we love, indeed, all of humanity, than the gift of lasting peace? The choice is ours.
Welcome to 2016 Advent devotions! The theme for this week leading up to the first Sunday of Advent is “God’s Peace is at Hand.”
Beginning Nov. 21 and culminating on Christmas Day, Goshen College students, faculty and staff will provide weekday reflections based on lectionary Scripture passages and the Advent theme: “The Holy Way: Walking in the Way of God’s Heart,” taken from Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada worship resources.
The road ahead will be long and difficult, but through Christ, this new journey is also one of hope. It represents spring, anew!
If you have doubt, or fear, you are not lost to the eyes of God.
Jesus, thank you for making this Friday ‘good’, as we commemorate your death and amazing love for us.
As we move through Holy Week toward Easter, this Maundy Thursday draws our attention to the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples.
During this season of Lent and Easter, what words need to be repeated not only in your head but in your heart?
Jesus commanded his followers to continue to tell the stories of his love and life, including especially those formerly considered undeserving of those stories.
Along with endings comes hope for a new chapter. When you look into the future, where do you see hope?
