And a child is born. Unto us a light is given in hour one of a new day Nov. 13 and Conrad Wilson, all of 7 pounds and promise, illumines at once the lives of mother, father, brother, grandparents, extended family, church and community. A light has come into the world and we experience God’s grace with life anew. Advent instructs us with new beginnings even as our lives advance and we contemplate the span of life. Therein lives hope and where hope resides faith may flourish. Life is an expression of God’s hope for us. New life refreshes our hopes and dreams.
Advent—The birth of Christ; advent—the coming or arrival, especially of something awaited or momentous.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given.Isaiah (9:6)
