This beautiful banner was made by our Team One Disciples of Christ.
They presented it during chapel on Friday, November 30. It hangs in the Evergreen Commons and communicates visually that we are in the season of Advent. The four candles of the Advent wreath, representing love, joy, peace, and hope, remind me of our Portrait of a Graduate definition of Disciples of Christ: Prepared to follow Christ with faithfulness, resilience, and humility in a broken but hopeful world.
As Disciples of Christ, we will...
...be Faithful in Love. God's love is unconditional and He teaches us to love one another.
...be Resilient with Joy. God is good in all things and in all things God is good. We trust that He redeems and recovers all things to His glory.
...have Humility and Peace. Because it is only through God's infinite grace that we are saved.
-have Hope. The God of Hope has sent His son to be our Savior this Christmas and every Christmas until He comes again.
