How bout this lovely freezing cold Christmas Day 2020? Seriously, it has been a beautiful day especially inside where we’ve been able to comfort ourselves by elevating the temp 25 degrees!
Over the past four Sundays we have celebrated Advent, the coming of Jesus into our World, by sharing four words:
Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
While these words may remind us of this season of Christmas, I pray that you and yours are applying them, in your life, each and every day to experience the nearness of this God who is forever faithful to do more than we can imagine.
This Christmas, YOU helped Life Community in so many ways to give more than she ever has to two families in Charleston County. Two families God had called on us to give a GIFT of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love to.
But you didn’t stop there! Through your giving we were able to send a check over to One80 Place to help underwrite the cost of helping those looking for a new life!
I have to say, Lynda and I have always loved LCC, but never more than right now! There is something about a year like this, that God chose to challenge LCC to bring more Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. In spite of this pandemic, God is opening doors for us to move well beyond where we have ever been. I am so grateful for each of you who have stepped up and it’s amazing to see what God is doing to reach this area.
Day after tomorrow we’ll wrap up our last Worship Service for 2020. Pastor Thomas is going to be sharing with us some words God has given him to share. This is the climax to a year the likes of which we have never seen before in our lives.
As we continue to pray against the loss of life, the loss of income, and the loss of civility, we nonetheless have heard four words that can change this WORLD.
Don’t let go of them. Draw them into your heart. Pray them to our Father in Heaven and keep living that life of giving so that others are cared for.
“Jesus’ mission was not simply to save individuals. He came to bring enduring light, truth, and goodness into all the world. ” (Dr. Scott McKnight)
Romans 12:18 “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”
See you Sunday @ 10:15 and in the meantime, stay warm!
