Advent Reflections
Members of the Messiah College community reflect on the meaning of "Christmas" (new phrase)

When I was a young, school-age child, I owned a small cedar treasure chest.  Every summer, our family would travel to various historic sites, and I would frequently return home with a special memento to carefully preserve in the chest.  On occasion, I would sit on my bed and lovingly examine my treasures, always remembering the wonderful stories and events associated with them.

This volume, entitled Treasure of the Heart, is filled with engaging stories, memories, and thoughtful reflections intended to enrich your Advent season.  Messiah College students, staff, and faculty invite you to share the Advent journey as you ponder the heartfelt treasures embodied in these pages.  May you be encouraged and challenged as your read these reflections - some are personal narratives, others focus specifically on the nativity story - all are inspired treasure from which we can gain strength for our common journey toward the celebration of the Incarnation - the miracles of Emmanuel - God with us!

Warmest regards,

Kim Phipps,
