2015 Third Sunday in Advent


Almighty God unto whom all hearts and minds are open and from whom nothing is hidden, thank you for for all things great and small.  You are marvelous and gracious, slow to anger and quick to forgive and nurture. Thank you for joy and peace. But most of all, thank you for Jesus, the Author and Finisher of the Christian faith!!!
