For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life
Dear LIS Friend,
This is the time of year when one often feels like there’s so much to do, but so little time with which to do it. If we’re not intentionally slowing our pace to savor Advent, we can quickly become overwhelmed with the gift-buying and gift-giving expectations of Christmas. The busy-ness and the pressure can lead us to frustration or even to tears. We may feel we just don’t have enough time or energy to give. We’re tapped out.
But Jesus is never tapped out. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving! Jesus has more than enough to give to us. He desires that we direct our attention to the personal gift he is to each one of us so that we can follow him with endurance and hope.
Please take time to reflect during this season of joyful anticipation by reviewing the Advent Booklet shared below.
We are so grateful to our friends at Loyola High School for sharing this resource with us. We hope yo
u will take a moment this Tuesday, December 3rd, to participate in our first
. We are so excited to be a part of this national movement that supports the important work of charitable organizations like ours.
Every act of generosity counts
and when counted together has an enormous impact on our community.
My prayer is that we enter this Advent season expecting a miracle. God is indeed
Savior. Do not be discouraged. God knows what you need more than you do and is waiting for you to trust him for it.
Peace and Blessings,
