Welcome to week one of this Advent season!
For our 2011 – 2012 journey from Advent to Epiphany, I have put together a weekly series of devotionals that is enhanced by Anglican prayer beads. Each devotion in the series will follow a typical Anglican prayer beads pattern that I have written to include a favorite hymn of the season.
So take a moment to reflect on today's message of hope.
“Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and always. Amen.”
"God is our refuge and strength, a help always near in times of great trouble."
“Come, Thou long expected Jesus born to set Thy people free”
2. Israel's Strength and Consolation, hope of all the earth Thou art;
3. Dear Desire of every nation, joy of every longing heart.
4. Born Thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a King,
5. Born to reign in us forever, now thy gracious kingdom bring.
6. By Thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone;
