Introducing Advent


“The Weary World Rejoices.” These words from O Holy Night speak of a truth. We are tired, yet we have hope. We are weary, yet we will find ways to celebrate. We are divided, yet we will find ways to be reconciled to each other just as God found a way to be reconciled to us. It is our hope and our prayer that you will make use of the opportunities to gather virtually to celebrate the hope of Jesus Christ for a weary world. May you be that reconciling voice of hope in the world. May we be a church that brings Christmas, Christ Incarnate, to the world every day.

Daily Devotional

Members of the Good Shepherd community have taken time to share their reflections on times of rejoicing amidst weariness for our 2020 Advent Devotional. Each post will be shared here on our blog or you can download the entire devotional below as a PDF.




Ways to Give



Help Families Facing Eviction

In ancient Israel there was a concept of Jubilee - where every 50 years people’s debts were forgiven, and slaves were set free. While there is debate over whether it was ever actually celebrated, the concept is one that we need to apply to 2020. As the year ends, through Joining Forces for Families, we have an opportunity to help the poor in our community.
