The First Sunday in Advent: Hope. 

Did you get the message?  It’s that we should be kind to one another.  We should be understanding.  We should be forgiving.  We need to recognize that God is on the move.  So is there something that you need to repair in your life?  Look carefully at your life so that you’re prepared to shine forth.

Based on the Lectionary for 11/27: Isaiah 2:1-5, Psalm 122, Romans 13:11-14, and Matthew 24:36-44.
