Advent starts this weekend as we remember Jesus’ first coming into the world. Each week, we’ll focus on a different Advent theme. To correspond with each new theme, a new ribbon will be available for you to take from our Advent Ribbon Tree for prayer and reflection. Help Prepare the Way… with Hope. Find our Advent Ribbon Tree in the Narthex.
Loving God, like the faithful men and women of long ago, we wait for you with joyful hope as you enter our lives in new ways. Help us to remember always that you come to us each day in the people we meet. Help us to be persons of forgiveness. Help us to make our homes and work and school – places where everyone
is treated with kindness and respect. Help us to be grateful for each day and be willing to share our gifts with one another. We trust in you who is always with us. Help us to be a people of hope in our world. Amen.
