Hope in the Holiday Season

by Pastor David Hansen, Director of Communication & Innovation

This is a busy time of year – for many of us, this is the busiest season of the whole year.

Christmas planning.




End of year reports.

Getting everything done in time.

Family gatherings.

Time with friends.

It all piles up in December.

The season of Advent reminds us to not let this busy-ness take over our lives. To carve out time to listen for God’s voice. To slow down, stay alert, and listen.

This month’s Toolbox is an invitation to experience Advent together, as a leadership time, in the midst of all of our obligations and the busy-ness of the season.
