Advent Sunday – by Bishop Richard Jackson

“God will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)

Thought for the day:

Christians believe there is a good end to the story and we’re part of a bigger picture. The pain of today will make sense looking back. In the midst of the now we have hope for the future both in this life and the life to come. Happy Advent!

Today’s prayer:

Lord, help us to reach out to you when times are tough. Help us to sense your love surrounding us even when we can’t feel it. When all seems lost, help us to hang on to hope because in the resurrection of Jesus, the light can’t be put out. Amen.
