Christ Church Deer Park


WELCOME TO ADVENT

Advent does not seem to make sense in our world anymore. This season of waiting flies in the face of our contemporary striving for immediate gratification. We do not wait well, yet throughout all our scripture readings during this season of hope and blessing we are asked to do just that - WAIT! Wait for a time when war will be no more.
Wait for the wolf to be at peace with the lamb.
Wait for a spirit of wisdom and understanding.
Wait for the eyes of the blind to be opened - the lame to leap
like deer - the tongue of the speechless to sing for joy.
Wait for water to spring forth in the desert.
Wait for the world to be filled with the knowledge of the Lord.
Wait for the return of Christ.

Check them out on the arrows posted on the compass in the Atrium. The second opportunity to participate in CCDP's vision planning will take place in November and December and is called 'A Church at its Best'.
