"The Advent Season"
December, 2014

   The Advent Season always  begins with HOPE because HOPE is the parent of FAITH which is what keeps us keeping on regardless of how dim may be the outlook.  Once we accept the importance of HOPE, we can include PEACE, LOVE and JOY.

   Although Jesus’ earthly ministry began in the 1st century, Advent, which symbolized the coming of the Christ as a Light to the world after 4-thousand years of darkness, was not celebrated until the end of the 4th century.

   By the beginning of the 7th century, soon after Dec 25th had been established as the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus, Advent, was confined to a 4-week period  of Spiritual celebration preceding Christmas as it still is today.

   The word “Christ” derived from the Greek word Christos means “the anointed one.”  The Advent Season can be a reminder that if we become willing to live our lives with unwavering faith like Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, we too can become anointed ones and bring light into the darkness of our own personal world.

    Advent is an opportunity to celebrate the life & teachings of Jesus who not only embodied love, but who came to teach that nothing is resistant to the healing power of love, and that miracles are natural, because the real miracle is always the love that inspires them.       

   HOPE, the parent of FAITH, is what really gives us the spiritual courage we to  expect  Light in the face of darkness,  Wholeness in the Face of disease,

Prosperity in the face of lack, Peace in the face of chaos, Joy in the face of sadness, Trust in the face of Change.                              
   In her book, The Power of the Mind to heal, Joan Borysenko says, “Spiritual courage is more than Faith that the universe is friendly and that we are ultimately safe.  Spiritual Courage is an inner knowing that it is so.”

   An inner knowing is the voice of certitude that helps us to understand without a  doubt, that something is true.  We know with certitude that the sun will rise in East and set in the West, that leaves will change color and fall to the ground, that birds will sing before dawn, and that the tide moves in and out.

   However, trusting in the face of Change without certitude, is the gift of Spiritual Courage which keeps us centered in the Truth that  every big change that comes along, regardless of what form it takes, whether it be death, divorce, financial ruin, addiction, loneliness, disharmony in relationships, Illness or whatever,  Is simply a Detour that will move us forward through a different route than we were expecting.

   And the real good news is that, once we get through that initial, frightening change by seeing it as a Divine DETOUR, It gets easier and easier to handle the next changing condition or circumstance that shows up in our lives.

   So the next time a big change shows up in your life,  I invite you to turn to HOPE the parent of FAITH, which will lead you to a place of PEACE, give you an inner feeling of LOVE and ultimately fill you with the JOY of surrender as you affirm the following: Knowing that Spirit leads my way, my Spiritual Courage welcomes every detour.

Merry Christmas and, May 2015 usher in a year filled with the HOPE, PEACE, LOVE, and JOY, that welcomes every divine Detour!

 

Choosing love,

Rev Julia
