Imagine what your life would be like if you awoke tomorrow morning and found that there was no water coming into your home. What would you do? Probably you’d get a few gallons of bottled water, and feel a bit grungy and inconvenienced until the water came back on. Other than that, things would really be OK. But what if the water never came back on? And what if the stores ran out of bottled water? What if the nearest drainage ditch became the only place we could get any water at all? Would you begin to worry about your health? There are people living with exactly that problem all over the world. And we can help. Take a look at this H2O video, pick up your water bottle at the church or download the free H2O Project cell phone app and TAKE THE CHALLENGE to make a difference this Lent.
As we celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent, a simple reflection: “The liturgy of Advent…helps us to understand the fullness of the value and meaning of the mystery of Christmas. It is not just about commemorating the historical event, which occur...
O Clavis David: “O Key of David, O royal Power of Israel controlling at your will the gate of Heaven: Come, break down the prison walls of death for those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death; and lead your captive people into freedom.”
O Radix Jesse: “O Flower of Jesse’s stem, you have been raised up as a sign for all peoples; kings stand silent in your presence; the nations bow down in worship before you. Come, let nothing keep you from coming to our aid.”
