Daily Lectionary Readings for Year B
The readings this morning form us as a people. They express the hope of a community brought together by God's grace and forgiveness, with hearts ready to dream, a vision for a brighter tomorrow, and strength in Christ to endure the suffering of this age. I believe it makes a difference to be joined together in community. We share each other's pain and celebrate one another's joys. We are not alone in this world. The baptism we share in Christ connects us and can be a constant reminder of God's constant presence in our lives.
The Wesley Park UMC Advent Calendar invites us to "Give joyfully today to a ministry or person in need." Here are some opportunities to give through UMC Giving. Consider giving this week toward the Black College Fund and celebrate how we are all connected in Christ.
