Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise the words of prophets, but test everything; hold fast to what is good; abstain from every form of evil. May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do this.  
 1 Thessalonians 5:16-24

This is the third week of Advent and as we light the candle of Joy we will look at the ‘readiness’ aspect of Advent that we sometimes miss. The pre-Christmas run-up is hectic for so many and we often forget the reason we are celebrating. Advent gives us the time to step away from the ‘Real World’ and get ourselves ready for the work that is before us. That work is sharing the Good News of Christ’s arrival and what it will mean to those who don’t already know him.   
Organ preludes will begin around 10:25 a.m. and the service will commence at 10:30 a.m. The link for this morning’s service is:
