VICTORY BYTES OF BREAD

SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT

Excellence: Doing What Matters Most—December 6, 2015

Advent is a time to focus on what ultimately matters. Amid all of the other “must-dos” of this season—endless shopping lists, office parties, Christmas concerts and pageants—the one thing that matters most is receiving what Jesus gives and then sharing these gifts with others. Sunday’s Readings prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus, opening our eyes and hearts to receive His saving grace and His perfect peace. Our Savior shows us what truly is “excellent” and what matters most.

See You Sunday! Pastor Phil
