Dear PVC Family,
It was last Sabbath at worship, while we were singing carols together, that the Good News of Advent jumped out off the platform right at me!
The Star on top of the tree speaks of the Incarnation of the Word that became flesh and “tabernacled” among us full of grace ant truth!
The Cross speaks of His atoning sacrifice – “He himself, bore our sins in His body on the Tree” – that we might be released from sin’s condemnation!
The Baptistery speaks of our inclusion in His 3rd-Day Victory over sin, death and the devil as New Creation people!
This is the message of Advent! This is the message of Christmas! This is the message that shapes who we are as the people of God in this world! Advent for Adventists, indeed!
Christ has Come!
Christ is Risen!
Christ is Coming Again!
This is the Hope that sustains us – this Christmas like no other – this Christmas of 2020!
Leanne and I feel so privileged to be part of this PVC family of faith! Thank you for your prayers! Thank you for your love!
In Jesus’ name –
We wish you a Merry Christmas!
And a Happier 2021!
May God bless you and yours!
Pastor George & Leanne
