How do we focus? In this harried season of busyness, we are getting distracted by the season, shifting relationships, and nostalgia of seasons past. Can we listen to God like the clarity of the prophets?
Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13
2 Peter 3:8-15a
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
The Very Rev Daniel Richards asks the parish members to pledge to the ministry to the Church, focus on Advent, and be invited to the meal of the great hope of the church.
