Prayer for the Third Week of Advent

Lord God,

We rejoice at the birth of your Son, Jesus. We listen to the words of John the Baptist who says: "There is one more powerful than I coming after me. I am not worthy to carry his sandals." This reference to the coming of Jesus shows his great power and love. We rejoice in the care and embrace of a loving God who continuously invites us to follow his Son. In preparation of the birth of Jesus, may we say yes to this invitation.

Good Stuff

I was out of the office three of the five days last week, so unfortunately did not get around to visit classes or to take photos. Hopefully I will be back to my regular form this week with all of the great activities we've got going on. Thank you to Victoria H for sending me these cute photos from the yard!
