Sunday, December 18: Advent 4 #

Mary said, "I am the Lord's servant.  I am willing to accept whatever God has for me." (Luke1:38)  May we all be willing to say "yes" to God, just like Mary!  Who knows what God might do with our "yes"?

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.

Sunday, December 4: Advent 2 #

Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God… He will lead his flock like a shepherd and carry the lambs in his arms. Isaiah 40: 1 & 11 Isaiah illumines God's compassion for humanity. What does that compassion mean today in a world filled with crises and suffering?

Advent begins Sunday, November 27! #

The season of Advent is one of expectation, hope, and joy!  It is our counter-cultural opportunity to slow down and consider God's great love gift of Jesus Christ.  On the first Sunday in Advent, we will think together about waiting expectantly. Our communion chant for the season encourages us: Wait for the Lord, whose day is near.  Wait for the Lord, be strong, take heart.
