This Sunday, we will celebrate the third Sunday of Advent. I don’t know about you, but that seems impossible!
Our focus for this Sunday is joy. With that, I’d like to ask you…What brings you joy?
- Maybe it’s time with family or friends
- Maybe it’s spending time in nature
- Maybe it’s making time for your favorite hobby
- Maybe it’s a really great cup of coffee
The list of possible sources for joy can go on and on. While it’s important to experience joy, it’s equally (if not more) important to spread joy. Instead of asking, “what brings you joy”, I should be asking, “How are you spreading joy?”
For the third Sunday of Advent, I want to invite all of us pause and prayerfully consider, “How am I a hopeful, peaceful, joy-filled presence?”
As we continue our “Christmas at the Movies” Advent series, we will use some clips from the Chevy Chase classic, “Christmas Vacation” to help us talk about joy!
