1st Week in Advent

This is the first week in Advent, the period of four weeks leading up to the celebration of Christ’s birth on Christmas Day. Today I bumped into one of our high school youth, John, who works as a stock boy at the local grocery store where we shop. He had attended our Hanging of the Greens service last night. That’s the service where we sing Christmas carols, have scripture readings, and place crismons (Christian Christmas tree ornaments) on the two trees at the front of our sanctuary.

John told me, “I liked the service. It helped me have a better attitude at the beginning of this Christmas season.” With all the busyness of the pre-Christmas season we certainly need to enter it with a good attitude.

As we begin this Christmas season how about committing ourselves to being sensitive to the Lord coming to each of us through the sights and sounds and the activities and events we’ll experience over the next four weeks? Let’s not let the Christmas activities distract us from Christ but attract us to Him!

    Thanks for expressing your ideas. I’d personally also like to say that video games have been ever evolving. Today’s technology and innovative developments have served create sensible and enjoyable games. Most of these entertainment video games were not really sensible when the real concept was first being tried. Just like other forms of technological innovation, video games also have had to grow by way of many decades. This is testimony for the fast development of video games.
