Sunday Moment: Advent 3 – The Love

Love came down at Christmas,
love all lovely, Love divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
star and angels gave the sign.

Written by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1885)

Sunday Moment: Advent 1 – The Promise

Today begins the season of advent, looking back in time to look forward to the first coming of the Messiah. As I reflect on these prophetic words in Isaiah, I am filled with great hope. Living in these modern days, I am blessed to know that the promise of the first coming of Christ has been fulfilled. Peace and joy to us!
