Romans 13:11, Matthew 24:42
Wake Up to Hope!

Both Jesus and Paul call on us to wake up and to be alert spiritually.  Advent is often a time when we prepare.  We prepare for Christmas gift giving, Christmas meals, Christmas celebrations; but do we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ and to grow in the cross-shaped hope he has for us in Christ?  Today we explore what we can do to prepare spiritually through Advent.  [Advent 1]
