The Advent season is one of wonder. It is a season of promise. The longer nights and gray clouds seem to provide the perfect background for the lights and tinsel. The decorations are everywhere we turn. For many, this is a time of hopeful anticipation.
Each year, St. John’s designates our first offering of the Advent season as a special gift to honor the sacred birth of Jesus. This year we will be turning our hearts and hands toward the hunger that is a day-to-day reality for one out of seven people in this country and a global reality that should break our hearts.
We are getting involved in two ministries that we pray will have lasting impact for those in need of daily bread.
