Words of Wisdom

“We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.”
– Winston Churchill


Prayer of the Week

Advent Prayer
God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
