The Beatles said it well, and often, “All you need is love.” When all of the stuff of life is stripped away, what is it we need to face another day, but love. Love doesn’t just make us feel good, it motivates us to give of ourselves. It leads us to think of others and respond with compassion.
This Sunday, we’ll light the second candle of Advent, the candle of Love. We’ll continue to set the Christmas Table, as we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of Christ. We’ll feast together and receive the gift of grace and love at God’s table. And, yes, the time has come to respond to God’s love with Extravagant Generosity. So with prayerful dedication we’ll turn in our pledge cards, our gift of love, our commitment for 2017.
It will be a full and joyful and love-filled Sunday! I hope you’ll be there.
See you on Sunday,
