a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

offering prayer for Advent

Gracious God,
some people give large amounts of money,
some people, like Mary and Joseph, give smaller amounts,
but sacrifice equally, if not more.
We give you thanks for offerings of all amounts,
and ask that you bless them equally
that they may do the work of your Son.  Amen.
