Sunday Bulletin

2nd Sunday of Advent

December 10, 2006

Readings.  Gospel: Luke 3:1-6

    John the Baptist is the last of the Old Testament prophets by Christian understanding.  The Jews consider Jesus Christ as the last prophet since he is not considered the Messiah. John the Baptist clearly paves the way and unequivocally states the Son of God made man has come into this world.  That is what we celebrate first and most at Christmas.

     "The Way to Happiness:
Keep your heart from hate, your mind from worry.
Live simply, expect little.
Fill your life with love.
Scatter sunshine, think of others.
You'll be surprised."
                                        Freddy Clarke.
