Advent Scripture Reflection

ADVENT is the season of the church year set aside to prepare for the coming of the Lord. Ironically, it has become one of the busiest and most demanding times of the year in the secular world. “Preparing for the Lord” may morph into shopping, cooking, decorating, and social obligations.

Consider taking a little extra time this year to prepare spiritually for Christmas. We will use the upcoming Sunday Gospels and prayerfully read and reflect upon them as a group. No advance preparation is needed – just come and listen to the Word of God.
