First Sunday of Advent~Hope

The first Sunday of Advent represents Prophecy, or Hope, to remember the hope we have in Jesus.
Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope. Isaiah 42: 1-4

  4. Thank you, Kathy, for this beautiful message of hope - the Hope of the ages! I want this Advent season to be special. I want to slow down and focus on the true meaning, the simple story of our Savior's birth. The fulfillment of the hope of centuries past.
