advent-2016The Seasons of Advent, Christmas and Epiphany at Cairn

This Advent, Christmas and Epiphany, we are celebrating Emmanuel, God with us, the incarnation, in all the many ways God is among us. We are basing our seasons on the passage in Isaiah 7: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Look, the young woman is with child and shall bear a son, and shall name him Emmanuel,” on Psalm 139, “For it was you who formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” and on Genesis 1, “in God’s image they were created.”

In Advent we are focusing on God among us, incarnate, in our own individual selves, in the process of birth and generations, in the process of creation and in the work of love we undertake together. At Christmas we will celebrate the special way God is among us in the birth and life and person of Jesus.
