Welcome to Christ Church Coronado

A MESSaGE FROM OUR RECTOR 

Way back in the day- way before chocolate Advent calendars were available, a cherished custom in our home was the careful opening of each paper window revealing more and more of the story of the Holy Nativity. Years later, I happened upon a profusion of chocolate Advent calendars on display in the check-out lane of our local grocers. I wondered then if the promise of a candy morsel would have instilled in me the same heighted anticipation as the glittery cardboard ones had offered. Even as a life-long chocoholic I doubted that the daily revealing of Santa’s workshop rather that the birthplace of the Baby Jesus would have made the same impact.

Recently I overheard one of our day school students ask the music teacher when they were going to sing some Christmas songs, like Jingle Bells and Rudolph. She lovingly replied they were already doing so since they were singing about the birth of Jesus. That the birth of Jesus was the reason we have anything to sing about at Christmas. Amen, I thought. Rudolph and chocolate Advent calendars surround us. But larger still, the Love of God manifest in One so lowly born reveals to us all, big or small, chocolate lover or not, the lengths to which God will go to share His Love.

During this holy season of Advent I invite you to heighten your awareness of the greatest Gift of all by joining us for Lessons and Carols, or La Posada or our road trip to Tessman Planetarium for the Star of Bethlehem presentation. Plus we gather each Sunday morning in Advent to hear and digest scripture with prayer and song and to receive Holy Eucharist in a community committed to knowing and sharing the Love of God in Christ Jesus.
