Advent 2021: News Bulletin by Jacqueline Coleman
“The angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.’”
2nd Day After Christmas
December 27, 2021
News Headlines, October 2021 - Fatal Accidents. Weather in West Causes Evacuations. Booster Shots Now Available. More Leaks Within Facebook. Virginia Election & Barak Obama Visit. Migrant Crisis from Mexico. Civil Unrest in Haiti.
For weeks I have intentionally limited my news intake to an hour a day. Yet I find myself eagerly watching for the good news segment.
News Headlines, 3-4 B.C. - Caesar Issues Decree. Shepherds Terrified. King Herod is Disturbed & Secretly Calls Magi. Star Appears in the East.
And then the good news:
The Angel of the Lord Appears
Baby in a Manger
The Birth of Jesus Christ
Behold beloveds, God's awesome agape love. We've been granted the ultimate gift - the very best news of all. I hope and pray this love sustains us during these uncertain days. May this good news permeate our days for there is much to be thankful for. We know and truly love Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Parent, we give you the highest honor and praise. We endeavor to keep our eyes, hearts, and witness fixed on thee this Advent season and beyond. Thank you for your lovingkindness always. We uphold your prize of goodness. Amen and Ashe.

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.
