Advent at NRUMC

How does a weary world rejoice?

Advent Theme: How does a weary world rejoice?

As Advent comes again to a weary world, we ask, “How does a weary world rejoice?” This year, we will follow the stories in the opening chapters of Luke’s Gospel.  We seek to break free from the myth that joy is elusive or undeserved and realize that it's deeply rooted in our connection to God. Even when weariness surrounds us, we’re called to remember that the world is in need of our joy.As we hold space for our weariness and our joy, we will seek a “thrill of hope” in our hurting world.
