Pastor Molly wrote a letter and a calendar for Advent and Christmas 2015 called Hush; because “words can’t bring you any closer to God. So hush, just hush.” I will be translating each day for our benefit.
Pastora Molly escribió una carta y un calendario para Adviento y Navidad 2015 llamado Silencio; porque “palabras no pueden traerte más cerca a Dios. Entonces silencio, simplemente silencio.” Lo estaré traduciendo cada dia para nuestro beneficio.
Today the Santiago-Gonzalez family lighted the 1st Candle – HOPE. It was a call to engage in trusting who God is and wants to be in each one of us. A call to Celebrate, a call to take the Banner of Victory and declare who we are and who called each one of us. They charged us to believe that Hope + Faith = VICTORY! Certainly we cannot celebrate without dance, and our Liturgical dance group dance inviting us to worship and to live a life full of the joy and hopes of the Spirit. We watched as one of our future prophet and dancer, 2 year old, did an impromptu liturgical dance that have us crying and worshiping in awe. Thank You, we understood that we are all prophets of hope and need to go out and declare Victory for us and also for all those individuals IN THE MARGIN!
Hoy la familia Santiago-Gonzalez predio la Primera Vela – ESPERANZA. Fue un llamado a envolvernos en confiar en quien Dios es y quiere ser en cada un@ de nosotr@s. Un llamado a celebrar, un llamado a tomar la Bandera de Victoria y declarar quienes somos y quien nos llamo. Ellos nos exhortaron a creer que Esperanza + Fe = VICTORIA! Ciertamente no podiamos celebrar sin danzar, y nuestro grupo de danza litúrgica nos invito a adorar y a vivir una vida llena de gozo y esperanza en el Espiritu. Observamos a una de nuestras profetas y danzarinas del futuro, 2 anos de edad, improviso una danza liturgica que nos hizo llorar y adorar en admiración. Gracias, entendimos que tos@s somos profetas de esperanza y necesitamos ir y declarar Victoria para nosotr@s y tambien para tot@s aquellos EN EL MARGEN!
You received Christ Jesus the Lord, so continue to live as Christ’s people. Sink your roots in him and build on him. Be strengthened by the faith that you were taught, and overflow with thanksgiving.
Por eso, habiendo recibido a Jesucristo como su Señor, deben comportarse como quienes pertenecen a Cristo, con profundas raíces en él, firmemente basados en él por la fe, como se les enseñó, y dando siempre gracias a Dios.
Vengan a las puertas de su templo; ¡denle gracias y alábenlo! Él es un Dios bueno; su amor es siempre el mismo, y su fidelidad jamás cambia.
Enter his gates with a song of thanksgiving. Come into his courtyards with a song of praise. Give thanks to him; praise his name. The Lord is good. His mercy endures forever. His faithfulness endures throughout every generation.

1 Samuel 17: 34-37 (ASV)
“And David said unto Saul, Thy servant was keeping his father’s sheep; and when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth; and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. Thy servant smote both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. And David said, Jehovah that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of…

Podemos prepararnos, pero al fin del dia la oracion es un dialago intimo y real. Plan all you want, and then LET GO AND LET GOD.
To you, O God, we lift up our hands in worship…we lower our shoulders in surrender…
We lower our gaze in humility.
We come before you, in grateful thanksgiving.
Knowing that our time together has already been a purposeful experience.
Knowing that the soil on which we stand is HOLY not because it is a sanctuary…
Not because it is any more special than any other
but rather because we are in YOUR presence.
we thank you for the lessons of yesterday that help shape the newness of today.
In all YOUR many names, help us and guide us…
BLESSED, we need a revolution
a revolution of your annointing GOD we ask that you fall upon each of us FROM the ground up not just from the tips of her heads into our hearts
BUT rather through our entire being
As that song…
