Deck the halls

Passage: John 1:6-8, 19-28
Service Type:

After finding the mess and cleaning it up, what now? Decorations! We’ve got to make the place look great for those who are coming. We want our welcome to be beautiful and our hospitality to breathtaking. So where do we start? What do we include? What does it matter?

Why do we decorate? To make ourselves look good? To please our own eyes? Or do we decorate to extend hospitality and inclusion to others?

We reflect our inner experience with our outward appeal. When we are a place of joy and invitation and inclusion, our environment reflects that. When we are a place that understands the depth of pain and suffering, of the ugliness in our world, then our doorways open to a place of comfort and beauty and welcome. Having reflected on our need to address the mess, we now set about bringing beauty and light into the world.

Join us this Sunday at 10am on Facebook and YouTube as we talk about decorating to invite others to experience the one who is coming!
