Elementary​:

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

As Christmas nears so the excitement grows. Our classes will end on Friday and then comes food, family and sharing gifts. Jesus knows that there are many distractions that try to take his place in our lives. Yet we all hunger to be hugged and loved. Jesus is God's love come to us in a person who can show us how to love through all the ups and downs of our lives.

We pray:

Lord help our hearts burn for you as we share love with our family and friends.

God's hope to direct me.

God's love to surround me.

God's joy to warm me.

God's peace to comfort me.​

Bless our Advent journey to Christmas with light and patience, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.


High School: 

In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Today we hear in Luke's gospel:

 … the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, John answered all of them by saying, 'I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing-fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing-floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.'

The Gospel of the Lord – Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus invites us to take a second, third, fourth etc. look at him and his teachings. There are many distractions that try to take the place of Jesus in our lives and we often come up with all sorts of reasons to not follow him or not believe in him. 

Yet, we all hunger to be loved. Jesus is love, God's love, come to us in a person who can show us how to love through all the ups and downs of our lives. Faith is a relationship.

We pray:

Lord help our hearts burn for you and for a meaningful life lived in the service of others.

God's hope to direct me.

God's love to surround me.

God's joy to warm me.

God's peace to comfort me.

Bless our Advent journey to Christmas with light and patience, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
