September 12

Reflection To be still is to seek a serenity, a calm, a tranquility of being separated from commotion or agitation. In these moments of stillness we touch into our inner selves and open ourselves to God’s presence within and without.

Advent Candle Lighting

Advent Candle Lighting

Join with Christians around the world in the prayerful ritual of lighting the Advent wreath.

Prayer

A Child came for all of us and because of that Child
We believe that love is stronger than fear,
Peace more enduring than hate
And that darkness will never extinguish the light
We are people of hope.

(Light the first candle)

Today we light the candle of peace.
Let us pray for the peace of Christ
which is the fullness of blessing for all.
For this peace we dare to hope.

(Second candle is lit)

 

    Nourished by prayer, supported by community and energized by ministry, we are constantly addressing the needs of these times.
