Welcome Message from Pastor Ken Hohag
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
The season of Advent prepares us for Christmas, not the kind of Christmas that comes from decorating the tree or shopping for loved ones. Advent prepares us for the Immanuel Christmas, the God-with-us Christmas – Jesus’ Christmas. Jesus’ Christmas is a season of peace, hope and love.
As we eagerly await the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, our season of Advent can get rushed, hectic and downright stressful, especially in this year of unprecedented threats to our health and financial well-being. Whether it’s the stress from being isolated from loved ones, struggling to heal from a broken heart, grieve the loss of a loved one or simply to put food on the table, the season can lose its message of peace, hope and love.
As disciples of the Living Lord, we are to minister to the least of these – those poor in health, those poor in spirit, those who mourn and those who hunger and thirst. Our focus this season of Advent is to help shine a little of Jesus’ light and love on those who are less fortunate, are feeling isolated, grieving or are suffering from illness.
I invite you to join us at Black Forest Lutheran Church in-person, online or from your car to slow down, take in a deep breath of God’s love (masked, of course), lean into the goodness and mercy of Jesus and allow the great Comforter to bring peace, hope and love back into your Christmas.
