Coming Home: Advent at First Pres

When something hits close to home, it affects us deeply. During the Advent and Christmas season, we journey through scriptures and rituals that are tender, heavy with emotion, and vulnerable. We acknowledge the “already but not yet” tension of our faith and our deep longing for God to come close to us. This Advent, may we be comforted by the One who dwells intimately with us. May we come home, wherever home is found—to live fully with joy, hope, and courage.
