Fr. Jody Howard, rector of St. Joseph of Arimathea Episcopal Church in Hendersonville, Tenn., reflects on the character of the season of Advent.
St. Joseph of Arimathea is a congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee and a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion.
At St. Joseph's, we are committed to loving and serving Jesus in all people and in every area of our lives. We are here to worship and honor Christ in loving obedience to his commands in our families, our work, and all our relationships; by serving him in all those "who, in this transitory life, are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity," and by calling all people into his saving embrace.
