The body does not consist of one member but of many. - 1 Corinthians 12:14 (NRSV)

I look forward to worshiping in community with my local congregation. I particularly love the special seasons of the church year, and I most want to be in church during Advent. The songs, the sermons, the decorations, and the music herald the coming of our Lord.

Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for the community we find in you. Help us to feel connected to all our siblings in Christ, especially when we feel alone. Amen.
