Advent is a season of waiting and longing for the birth of Christ and the coming of God's Kingdom. It is a period of hope, peace, joy and love, and of prayerful anticipation for the coming of a new world built on trust, justice, love and mercy. In our society today, especially in workers’ lives, we see too much of what is dark: corporate greed, bullying, disrespect, and a parent’s deep desire to make a living to provide for their children.
Advent challenges us to reflect on what it really means to be a disciple of Christ. It challenges us to speak out and stand up in a way that reflects the power of God's Kingdom among us.
This Advent, we invite you to join us in reflecting on the gifts of work, community and justice.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
-The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
