Advent 2021: Advent by James Robinson
"For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness"
23rd Day of Advent
December 20, 2021
It appears that we will be spending another Advent season on Zoom and/or Facebook due to the coronavirus. Your relationship with God should be a personal one, but for my entire life, I have been a churchgoer, and it is an integral part of my faith walk. Matthew 18:20 declares, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Change can be very challenging for me.
Father God, have thine own way, I pray. Amen
Brother James Robinson
Join us in a time of reflection, expectation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2021.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline.
