Advent 2016: Longing for Life
What do you think of as the most basic elements essential for life? Light, water, food? Jesus made the audacious claim that he himself embodies those very elements – that he is the Light of life, the Bread of life, and living Water.
This Advent, as we look ahead to Jesus’ birth as a baby, we’ll reflect together on his coming into the world as the source of all life. Through the concrete images of Jesus as light, bread and water from John’s gospel, we experience anew the power of the Incarnation and Jesus’ promise to give abundant life to the world.
