Dear friends,

We are entering the season of Advent, a time of waiting and preparation. While the cultural demands and expectations of Christmas can be overwhelming, but the season of Advent serves as a deliberate reminder that the light of God surpasses the darkness in the world.

May we fix our eyes on Christ Jesus, the symbol of God’s hope, peace, joy, and love during this season.

Monthly or Biweekly Evening Bible Study

I’m currently in talks with a few of you about initiating a monthly or biweekly evening Bible study (or Lectio Divina: Divine Reading) in the upcoming year. Please let me know if you’re interested in joining a monthly or biweekly evening Bible study.
