is the first Sunday of Advent,
as we begin our annual
spiritual journey to your birth.
The prophets call people
to repentance as they look forward
to the coming of a savior.
We enter into the waiting
and expectation of what is to come.
Guide us, Lord, as we prepare for
and enter into a deeper
relationship with you.
A voice cries out: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”
“Therefore, you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”
Hymn: Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus
