So, this is Advent – 2023


A time to reflect on and share messages of hope and promise.

A time to hold in reflection and prayer, the sacredness of all life.

A time to prepare room in the inn of our hearts for peace, justice and compassion.

A time to stay alert, anticipate  and welcome a stable of fresh possibilities.
