Wait, Look, Receive
The Holy Spirit is on the move! The prophets Anna and Simeon are channeled by our own resident prophet Rita Kowats, this first Sunday of Christmas. The elders of Jerusalem wait, looking for the Spirit, ready to receive the infant Jesus and to declare the salvation of Israel. We are encouraged by these beloved elders – in scripture and in our midst – to also be God-receivers. Plus, Pastor Amy sings the children’s time.
