Consider this quote by Hilary Horn from “Lean Towards the Light This Advent and Christmas Season” compiled by Christine Aroney-Sine & Lisa DeRosa.

“As advent continues, I am reminded that hope is not that God guarantees a life of bliss and perfection, but that in all seasons, trials and circumstances, God is with us.

In seasons that are hard, I want to proclaim the truth of God’s promises and be like Mary, calling myself, ‘blessed’ because I rest in the biblical hope of Jesus… God with us.”

Thank you God, that You are with us – as individuals, as a church, as a global community.
