First Sunday of Advent 2020
Something to think about
What does the season of Advent mean to you?What have you been missing most from not being able to attend church?
What are your thoughts on the second coming of Jesus?
How do/will you prepare yourself for meeting Jesus face to face?
What do you think you need to change?
How can you demonstrate to others that you are a Christian?
What verse/passage encourages you and why?
Collect for the First Sunday of Advent
give us grace to cast away the works of darkness
and put on the armour of light,
now in the time of this mortal life,
in which your Son Jesus Christ came to us in great humility,
that on the last day,
when he shall come again in his glorious majesty
to judge the living and the dead,
we may rise to the life immortal,
through him who is alive and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit
one God, now and forever
A prayer for next week
your Son Jesus Christ came that we might have life
and have it abundantly,
pour out your blessing upon our nation,
where there is illness,
bring your healing touch,
where there is fear,
strengthen us with the knowledge of your presence,
where there is uncertainty,
build us up in faith,
where there is dishonesty,
lead us into truth,
where there is discord,
may we know the harmony of your love,
this we ask in Jesus’ name.
