Advent blessings to you!
Christmas lights are starting to light up the darkness and warmth is beginning to return. I pray this morning that hope is beginning to seep into your soul. May you know the hope of God that promises, that no matter what you are a child of God, deeply loved, and so are they.
Today’s devotional is written by Dr. Harry Parker. Dr. Parker is the TCU Department of Theater chair and the managing director of the Trinity Shakespeare Festival at TCU. He received his B.F.A in Theater from TCU and his Masters and PHD at the University of Kansas. He has directed more than 80 professional, community and academic theatre productions across the country including professionally at the Kennedy Center (Washington D.C.); Stages Repertory Theatre (Houston); American Heartland Theatre (Kansas City); and Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma (Oklahoma City). In Fort Worth, he has directed professionally for Amphibian Stage Productions, Jubilee Theatre and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, as well as having directed 9 shows for Circle Theatre. He has served at TCU since 2003. Harry is incredibly creative, passionate about his students, and deeply faithful. He reminds us that sometimes all we have is hope, and that is enough. I pray you hear God whispering hope into your life through his words.
Peace to you,
Rev. Allison Lanza
