All I Want For Christmas
This is the time of year where we draw up lists of gift ideas, writing down what we hope to receive. Beyond lists of gifts, the holidays highlight deeper hopes and desires we have for our own lives and the world.
Who hasn’t wanted to see God show up, to find some good news, encounter a new beginning, or find someone to believe in? Who hasn’t longed for that at a personal level and looked for it in our families, communities, or nations?
During the Advent season we will tap into some of these deeper hopes and desires, connecting them with the words of the prophet Isaiah.
