Question of the Week


Advent and Christmas Letter



My brothers and sisters in Christ, as we walk along this Advent journey and prepare to celebrate the many tremendous gifts of Christmas, I invite you to take some time to reflect on the many gifts -Christmas and otherwise -that you have received throughout your lives. In the hustle and bustle of the coming holiday season, give yourselves time to pause, slow down and give thanks for the gentle times you have experienced; for the difficulties God has seen you through; for the joys that bring a smile to your lips and for the hope and anticipation of wonders to come.


These seasons of Advent and Christmas are opportunities for Christians to step back from the secular world of worries and chaos and to recognize that while we are called to live in the world, we are not called to be of the world. We have been given, through Jesus Christ, the privilege of living already in the Christmas and Easter gifts of salvation, the love of God and eternal life. We have so very much to give thanks for and this time of the year, both secular and Church, is a wonderful time to give witness to our faith in God through Jesus Christ and to share with the world the good news that Jesus was indeed born and will indeed come again!


I invite you to join me at Saint James as we journey together. As a community and as a family, let's join together in worship and fellowship to celebrate God's incredible gift of His Son, Jesus Christ to each and everyone of us.


Christmas is a time for family, and I invite you to join in the festivities with your very own Church family.


Please find a list of services over the Advent and Christmas season. Invite your friends. Call your family. Come celebrate with us. We can't wait to see you!


May God bless and keep you all..
