Advent Message from the Moderator

Unwrapping Advent

The Right Rev. Dr. Richard Bott, Moderator of the United Church of Canada

This Advent, Moderator Richard Bott reflects on his baking skills and invites us to unwrap and celebrate what is most dear to our faith.

As we look toward the season of Christmas, it’s often a time filled with patterns, habits, and traditions, and sometimes a sense that it’s not quite right, not quite what it used to feel like, not quite what we expected.

But are expectations from the past getting in the way of how we experience the present?

Advent is a season of unwrapping something new in our faith life. This year, let’s take some time to unwrap what God has wrapped for us.
