As we ponder the reason for the gift, let’s spend the Advent Season looking at the Gift.

Week One:  How the Gift was Given

Week Two:  The Gift in Israel

Week Three:  The Destruction of the Gift

Week Four:  The Gift Restored to Life

Week Five:  The Gift’s Return

In preparation for tomorrow’s meditation, read Luke 1:26-38.

See you in a twinkling,
