Starting on Sunday, November 28 Calvary’s Advent Devotional will be available in daily installments. We hope you will check back every day!
Advent: it’s a time of anticipation and hope. From the perspective of our faith story, we’re waiting for Messiah’s birth. From the perspectives of our everyday lives, we’re longing for far more than a baby born in a stable. We dream of living in the world that God created, that God imagines for all of humanity.
When we wait for Messiah, we are hoping with every fiber of who we are for that perfect world, a world in which justice, peace, wholeness, salvation, grace, and gratitude become tangible realities, where we live into the hopes God created humanity to embrace.
While we wait, while we walk toward wholeness in a very broken world, we can claim our identity as followers of Jesus and live our lives in the expectation of all God’s highest hopes for us.
