I hope it’s been a great year for you. 2022 has had its ups and downs but through those ups and downs we grow closer as a community, a congregation and as friends. Through those relationships we build the foundation of many things, without those meaningful relationships what could we gather out of a year? That is why this Christmas season we should all strive to strengthen the bonds between each other among friends, families and even between the people we disagree with. This Christmas season try to talk to someone you disagree with and you may even become friends. The power of good relationships is endless so this Advent season try and fix the ones you may have broken, strengthen the ones you already have and make some new ones.
