Advent Devotional Dec. 5

Welcome to Lord Of Life’s Advent Devotions for 2015.  Our theme centers around Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol, which will also the be theme of our Wednesday evening services.  This devotional is in the form of a homily – a line-by-line discussion of A Christmas Carol – not the whole story, but the Spark Notes summary.  When you see the words What Think Ye: please interpret as “discussion starter for our family or group” or “meditation focus” if by yourself.

Opening Prayer:  Lord, guide us as we ponder the ways in which this story and your story may influence our story – as our lives unfold today.  Amen.

JACOB MARLEYDecember 5th

Later that evening, after returning to his dark, cold apartment, Scrooge receives a chilling visitation from the ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley.

Scrooge’s “this year is the same as last year” life is abruptly disrupted by a “life changing event”.

What Think Ye:  Have you experienced such a “life changing event”?

Closing Prayer: May we live this day more deeply aware of your presence – in our past, in our present, and in our future. Amen.
