ALAMOSA — Christmas doesn’t have to be over with just a flurry of unwrapping gifts and a single meal of turkey with dressing. The four weeks prior to Christmas are called the season of “Advent,” a time of watching, preparing, rejoicing and waiting in anticipation of Christ’s grace given each day and of his glory to be revealed at the end of time.
As Holy Scripture tells us about our living in the “last days,” believers aren’t just to celebrate the past event of the Savior’s birth, but are also to be following Christ’s ways in vigilant living. The joy to the world in the grace that Christ brings for abundant life is tempered with responsible prayerful living according to his will and by the help of the Holy Spirit.
Be part of the abundant life in the joy of prayerfully following in Christ’s ways by participating in Advent devotions. Midweek Advent devotions at Trinity Lutheran Church and School will begin Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 7:15 p.m., preceded by a soup supper at 6:30 p.m. Our theme this year is “Postures of Prayer before Christmas” and the devotion on Dec. 5 is “Praying on Your Knees.”
Trinity’s Sunday worship service is at 10 a.m., with Bible studies and Sunday school at 8:45 a.m.
