“Lord, w place our trust in your promise. Please, Lord, rouse your power and come into this place in our life, this relationship, into this deep self-defeating pattern. Please come here and save us.”

First week of Advent
Advent is the period preceding the Christmas season. It begins on the Sunday nearest November 30, the feast day of St. Andrew the Apostle, and covers four Sundays. Because the day it begins changes from year to year, so does the length of each Advent season. Advent begins on November 29. The word advent, from Latin, means “the coming.” For centuries, Advent has been a time of spiritual reflection as well as cheer and anticipation.
