This coming Sunday morning, we begin the season of Advent, a time to prepare our hearts for the birth of Jesus at Christmas.
In order to grow spiritually in preparation for Christ’s birth, we will explore one chapter each week from the book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. We will also reacquaint ourselves with the biblical Christmas stories which demonstrate these four agreements:
Advent 1: Be impeccable with your word / Zechariah
Advent 2: Don’t take anything personally / Joseph
Advent 3: Don’t make assumptions / King Herod
Advent 4: Always do your best / Mary, Jesus’ mother.
You’re invited to purchase the book The Four Agreements at this link so you can follow along. The link is below. It’s a quick read, concise and impactful. Even if you don’t read it, please come to church anyway as the meaning will, hopefully, become clear through the sermons.
May we grow closer to God together this Advent, welcoming Jesus, and agreeing to the abundant life he offers.
Pastor James Dollins
