As we close out 2021, a note from Chaplain Rhonda

Dear Good Shepherd Families,

Advent is a time of Hope, Waiting, and Anticipation. This year, it seems those words reach beyond the meaning of the Christmas season.

With much anticipation, we eagerly hope for a time when we have more comfortable days in our daily lives. We are waiting for more ease and more carefree days ahead. We all are hopeful for a time when we can be together to hug each other, and share visible smiles.

Fortunately, at the core of Christmas, lies a call back to the covenant, to renew our commitment to peace on earth - to trust and turn back to the source of life itself. So this year, let the spirit we share during the season of Advent strengthen the bonds we share with each other, remembering God gave us heaven on earth on the first Christmas day so long ago. Let us restart and reset with thoughts of that moment. Merry Christmas to one and all.

With HOPE in my heart,
Chaplain Rhonda
