Advent arrived with great fanfare as we welcomed a new tradition to CAPC--the Living Nativity. What a joy it was to see the smiles, to hear the laughter and people of God being in community and sharing in the wonder of the season as we entered this great season. I witness from my office window the comings and goings of so many people that call Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church home: worshippers, church family and friends, those looking to be fed (spiritually and physically) hungering for something more. I see those that are coming to learn, coming to serve, coming to breathe life into their faith through countless acts of community and compassion. I see contractors that come and bless us with the work of their hands to repair broken pipes, clean off roofs, make preparations to begin the work of renovation on our kitchen. It all speaks to the wonderful incarnation of our Savior, God with us. He is with us in all of our brokenness, all of our struggles, our joys and our triumphs as well. God is with us in this amazing place we call home as we seek to share the light and love of Christ to everyone we meet. May your Advent season shed new light in your own hearts and may this be a true season of joy for you and those you love. If you haven't been home to CAPC for a while, please come in...we've left the light on for you and would love to have you home for the holidays!
