Welcome to the Willapa United Methodist Church (WUMC). We are delighted that you are visiting our website and hope to see you face-to-face soon!
Merry Advent one and all,
We’re coming closer to…? That’s the question.
For most of us, Christmas is a time of focusing on our kids and grandkids and I wouldn’t dare say anything against this. Most of all, because I believe it. I guess the second reason is that I’d end up on some people’s list and I wouldn’t want that.
Yet, there’s more to Christmas and I want to write something about Christmas for adults. And the first thing I want to say is that all of us adults have a little boy or girl inside of us. I know some may doubt that Bob Walden has a Bobby inside but I’ve seen it. And part of Christ’s birth is for the little Bobby’s inside of us. So we can feel love. So we can feel joy. So we can play.
The second thing on my mind is that many of us adults need the good news of Christ’s birth more than our small friends. Or at least as much. My gosh, as we get older the reality that we bang our heads against is like that old inn door. It’s hard. It’s locked. There’s no room anyway! And we need to feel God’s great hospitality and heart.
So for those of us helping to make Christmas happen please keep an eye out for wayward adults and our needs. Look for those locked out, in pain. Watch out for those lost in meaningless repetition. Be awake for those who are stressed out.
We’re coming closer. Let’s help Christmas happen for all who we can touch.
