Rev. William Gubbins, Celebrant


THIS WEEK'S FOCUS:

ADVENT IS CALLING!

Advent is a season that makes demands on our attentiveness. It is a time for us to pay attention to the ways in which the Divine beckons us.

Let us pray:

Savior of the world, you are the Prince of Peace. We are not at peace. We feel some risk. You have always been faithful to us. We are not always faithful to you. As we move into Advent, bring us to deeper conversion. You ask us to be more aware of your presence. You are here. You are active. You are always moving in our lives. Thank you for rescuing us in our past. We trust you to take care of our future. O come, Emmanuel, Come and save us!
