Close to Home
Advent and Christmas at Rock Spring
“Close to Home” is the theme for this Advent and Christmas at Rock Spring. Home, of course, is both physical and metaphorical, something we seek and something we are called to build.
As we journey through the scriptures, music, and rituals of this season, we carry the memories and truths of this season close to our hearts. The Close to Home theme acknowledges the “already but not yet” tension of our faith: Emmanuel is with us, and yet, God’s promised day — our everlasting home — is not fully realized. It names our deep longing for God to come close to us. Ultimately, God is our home and resting place. God draws near and makes a home on earth; sacred ground is all around us.
This Advent, may we be comforted by the One who dwells intimately with us. May we expand safety and sanctuary for everyone wandering far from home. May we come home — wherever home is found — to live fully with joy, hope, and courage.
