Tyrannical overreach and fear have been the two consistent elements of the government’s response to the COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus. Patti Kurgan has written an article, Life of Fear or Life of Peace, stating that now is the time to put yourself in the hands of our Creator, God. In doing so, peace will fall upon you eliminating the turmoil and anxiety so many people live in today. Advent is the time of year we prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ. The door to God’s house is open and He is waiting for you to enter.
Steve Cruice, Three Points Financial co-owner, notes that money can bring joy or can take joy out of your life. During this weekend of “thanks” he states three ways that money can bring joy: establish your own financial finish line; give to charitable organizations or people in need and; give with the attitude of gratitude.
Guest Father John Lager, Capuchin Franciscan and National Chaplain of FOCUS, Fellowship of Catholic University Students, joins Kim and Patti to share thoughts on the Advent season. It is a time to prepare for the coming of our Lord and also a time to look forward to the second coming of Christ. With hope, expectations and anticipation we ask the Lord to come into our hearts and our souls. We need to be in a state of reflective silence and heed the advice of St. Teresa of Calcutta: “We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.” Kim references Psalm 46:10: “Be still, and know that I am God.” Advent is an opportunity to grow closer to God. One way is to be of service to others. The conversation moves to the difference between joy and happiness. Joy is found in the Holy Spirit as He gives us refuge, comfort and strength. During this Christmas season always keep in mind the image of the Christmas crib in the stable. Invite your family and friends to reflect on the Lord.
