The Advent gift on Day 11 of Sharing the Joy comes from the Growing in Faith Circle.
Hee Won Chang (Synod of NSW/ACT) offers a video reflection on awaiting the birth of the One who will bring hope, peace, joy, and love.
As we wait for a cry of a baby to disrupt our world…as we eagerly wait for the birth of Jesus who will bring hope, who will bring peace, who will bring joy and who will bring love…
What is hope for you? What colour would it be?
Where would you find peace? What noise would it make?
What taste is joy? What would joy sound like?
Where do you find love? Could you feel it in your hands and feet?
As we wait… ask these questions to the people and community around you- your family and friends, neighbours and strangers, church community, community beyond the church…and listen.
As we listen…
May you hear, see, touch (COVID-safely), and feel Jesus Christ already here. Bringing hope wrapped with justice, peace immersed in grace, joy bundled with righteousness and love showering mercy to you and me and all the creation. Amen.
