Sunday, December 2

First Sunday of Advent

As we light the first Advent candle,
The Candle of Hope, let us pray:

O Come, God of our Hope~
In these days of preparation,
keep us from becoming anxious and fearful.
Shelter us in your abundant love,
that we might be patient,
as we wait in joyful hope
for your presence in our world.
Remind us of your mercy,
that we may live as your redeemed people,
and offer love and forgiveness to others-
as we anticipate and build your dominion here on earth.
We ask this through Christ,
Our Savior and Our Hope,
Amen.

    Beautiful reflection on this 1st day of Advent.
    My hope was brought forth in the birth of my Grandson today.

    Isn’t that what Christmas is all about, the hope in a child.

    Peace,
    Naila Moon
