Love to all!! I hope your Thanksgiving time was blessed and relaxing.
We come to Advent desirous of a world of peace and none of the rushing activity that the season seems to impose on us. So be blessed....and be still...in fact, "be still and know that I am God!". It will do wonders in your Advent preparation for Christmas.
The Scriptures for our coming weekend are Isaiah 11: 1-10, psalm 72, Romans 15: 4-7, 13 and Matthew 3: 1-12. Isaiah gives a description of the Messiah upon whom the Spirit descends. Romans calls us to HOPE as we become like-minded and unified in giving God glory. The Matthew reading gives us details of John the Baptist's repentance preaching with many implications for our world today.
Stuff of the week at the chapel
Tuesday and Thursday noon Eucharist
Wednesday evening prayer at 5:30
Thursday after Eucharist at about 1 pm THE CHURCH IS BIGGER study.
