A First Advent Blessing

Today, we begin the journey together to Bethlehem. We await the King who once came, who will one day come to renew heaven and earth, and who somehow comes to us each year again and again.

No matter how many times you have made this journey or how prepared (or more likely unprepared!) you may feel, may the journey to meet the King strengthen and refresh you for the next chapter of your life. 

The hand of a prophet showing the way.

May the prophets show you the way . . . 

"For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the earth." Job 19:25

"Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."  Isaiah 7:14

"But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days." Micah 5:2

"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned." Isaiah 9:2
