It’s the beginning of a new church year. The altar is adorned in blue. The midweek services are preparing us for the coming of the Christ Child.
Advent is a season of preparation–but a different sort of preparation than that of the average consumer. It’s not so much about getting ready for a big extravagant holiday. It’s about preparing our hearts for the Savior.
In darkness and expectation we wait. We listen to the voice of the Lord, speaking across the ages, to us gathered in the pews on a cold and dark December night.
And what we hear is good news, good news of peace, of God reconciled to us, of hope and a future.
And while we wait, we have to finish just a few more recipes!
Cranberry Holiday Salad
This recipe (p. 9) comes from Jean D. and it was a tasty addition to our Thanksgiving table.
