Pastor Sally’s Devotional 12/15

| December 15, 2020

Dear friends,  I was in awe of the sunrise this morning.  I woke my husband and sent him outside in the cold with his camera and photographer’s eye to get a picture of the St. Joe with the sun rising behind it.  You can see the big pink and purple cloud billowing off to the left in the picture.  The whole thing dispersed as the sun rose.

As we continue our Advent journey, I want to look for the light of Christ to disperse the clouds that have been hovering around us for many months now.  This is not a pie in the sky kind of statement as if Christmas will solve all our problems.  Much as I have hopes for better days in 2021 with the new vaccine, this is not what I’m talking about when I look for Christ to disperse clouds around us.  Rather, I am looking for Christ’s light to give hope and to shine on the goodness of God all around us in the here and now – even when life is hard.  People who have suffered great tragedies know the power of God in their lives often lets them find light and reflect light in even the darkest of circumstances. 

I found hope in this beautiful sunrise this morning and wanted to share it with you.


Pr. Sally
