Good morning.


There are times in our lives when it feels as if God has abandoned us. We find ourselves in difficult situations and get caught in a spiritual slump. What once felt like a time of perfect peace crumbles to chaos as we wonder if he even hears our cries or cares about our hurt.


Immanuel - God with us. What a concept. No matter where we go, God is with us. No matter how deep into despair we feel, God is with us. In times of great joy or times of insurmountable grief, God is with us. Why is he with us? Because he loves us.


The great thing about Immanuel is that when we take a step back into His arms we will find His peace. Jesus said, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." (John 14:27)


According to the Christian calendar, the 4th Sunday of Advent, Christians the world over celebrate the peace that came with the birth of Jesus Christ. This peace is free to all who accept Christ as their Saviour and Lord.


In the days leading up to Christmas take the time to celebrate the 4 virtues of Advent - hope, love, joy and peace.


Enjoy worshipping the Christ of Christmas today.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
