Advent Is here

A lighted candle for the first Sunday of Advent

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.—Psalm 27:14 (NIV)

Today marks the first day of Advent, a time of purposeful waiting and preparation for Jesus’ coming. As you pray and reflect, get excited about Christ. Make a commitment to keep Him at the center of your focus.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, may my thoughts and deeds this season spread Your glorious light into the lives of those around me.
