What others are saying:
We used all 5 readings in our Advent services this year. Thank you! They added a beautiful depth and focus for our times together and brought important insight into much about that first Christmas, but also to our ongoing need for the hope, peace, joy, love and presence of our Savior.
~ Pastor Kelly Sikstrom
