Advent Hope

ShepherdCalls_WP‘Tis the season of Advent. The word “advent” means “a coming.” For Christians it denotes the coming of Christmas, the time when God came to earth as a baby. Traditionally, the four Sundays prior to Christmas and Christmas Day are celebrated as the Advent season.

by Pastor Steve Ellison

The Thanksgiving holiday has a long tradition here in the U.S. The Plymouth Colony observed the first Thanksgiving in 1621. George Washington and other early Presidents directed the country to celebrate Thanksgiving in an on-again, off-again fashion until Abraham Lincoln made it an official annual federal holiday during the Civil War.

Thanksgiving Complications

ShepherdCalls_WPThanksgiving! The word is something of a paradox. Think about it. More often than not, one is thankful for something they have received; but the word “thanksgiving” advises us to “give.” Human nature generally prefers receiving more than giving.
