Dear friends in Christ,
Advent greetings from the Czech Republic. I pray that this season of waiting and watching finds you safe and healthy.
“As we prepare for the coming Christmas season, we would also prepare our hearts for the returning Christ. You came once for your people, O Lord, and you will come for us again.” – excerpt from ‘A Liturgy To Mark The Start Of The Christmas Season’ by Douglas Kaine McKelvey
“When Thou shalt appear in power and majesty, oh, let this Thy glorious advent be to me a day of rejoicing, that I may lift up my head with gladness because my redemption draws nigh.” – excerpt from ‘The Lutheran Book of Prayer’ (1941).
