A Christmas Message from Bishop Alex

A Christmas Message from Bishop Alex Cameron

While Christmas is—and ought to be—a joy-filled time of year, it can also be a source of anxiety, grief, and even fear for many among us. For those of you burdened with fear, I want to assure you that Jesus Christ is the antidote to that fear—that the gift God gives us on Christmas is a reminder that we are not alone. He has come to dwell among us.

A Devotion for the Third Week in Advent

An Advent 3 Devotional

They shall see the glory of the Lord,
    the majesty of our God.
Strengthen the weak hands,
    and make firm the feeble knees.

And the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together;
    and a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze;
    their young shall lie down together;
    and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra,
