Advent Series

Grace is a pure gift. It is something we can’t earn, we can’t buy and we don’t deserve. But, we can position ourselves to receive it and we can give it away to others. Advent is a season of grace and more than any other time of year we need to give and receive it. The busyness and pressure of the holidays can lead to unhealthy stress. With God’s grace we can find the peace, the comfort and the joy we so greatly desire during this season of the year and we can share it too. In this series we will look at the grace especially available to us during Advent.
