Today's Thought

Advent is a time we remember God’s gift to us in Jesus. Maybe it will free our gifts to become contributions to the well-being of the human community, not power plays over and against each other. Of all the prayers of Advent, one of the best is to pray that your gifts enhance life and not diminish it.
