Bridges and Beacons – December 9

We continue exploring familiar hymns during this season of Advent as Dick Cornelius reflects on “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.” Dick explains that the lyrics focus on Jesus coming to each of us individually – but points out that we must first open our hearts to him.

Bridges and Beacons is shared on Mondays and Wednesdays. We hope these devotionals continue to offer a chance to slow down, take stock of our blessings, and to allow the peace and calm of Jesus’ message to fill our hearts.
