God has a gift for you. It is a gift that will not fail no matter what you may face. Christmas is our annual celebration to recognize that this gift has arrived. Although we may not always be patient and faithful as we wait for it, Jesus is always faithful. He always arrives. A fresh and exciting understanding of his grace is waiting for you!
This Christmas you are invited to a life-changing but difficult task: To wait. To go slow. The coming of Jesus, the Messiah King, came after 400 years of waiting and anticipation. God is not hurried. Every moment he whispers, “I am with you.” We have to slow down to hear that whisper. The resources at http://menlo.church/advent will help you slow down and set your mind and heart upon Jesus during this busy, hurried holiday season.
