Advent Word 2020, Day 11 ‘Mercy’

#AdventWord #Mercy

Sometimes this word confines us as a small measure of what we require or are able to give. In thinking about mercy, we so frequently have our own narrow needs and restricted limits.

Yet God’s mercy is boundless, amazingly so, reaching out, beyond anything that we can imagine, to embrace and to forgive. And as we experience it, fresh and full every day, our hearts expand in response to the miraculous gift that changes everything.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness! (Lam 3:22-23)

Celebrating 50 years of God’s mercy, grace and love at St. James’ Church, Taichung!  Rev. Charles C. T.. Chen, rector emeritus, Rev. Lily L. L. Chang, rector and Ms. Luanne Y. J. Chiu, St. James’ Preschool supervisor cut the 50th anniversary cake on St James’ Day, July 25, 2020.

And Happy Birthday too to Charles Chen – celebrating his 85th birthday tomorrow, December 10!
