MEMORIAL OF AMBROSE, BISHOP, DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH Wednesday, Dec 07, 2022
Firm stance, gentle hand
Saint Ambrose of Milan, the esteemed early church theologian and pastor, was consecrated bishop of Milan on this day in 374, during a trip to the city to quell a succession crisis for the contentious church post. Known for his conciliatory demeanor, Ambrose was a staunch defender of orthodox beliefs about the divinity of Jesus, but he was also respected by those who believed Jesus not to be God, because of his willingness to listen to them. Among his countless contributions to the church, he converted Saint Augustine of Hippo with his preaching and baptized the wayward son before his own journey to theological greatness. In this season of charity, may we all emulate Ambrose’s devotion to peace and unity on his holy feast.
TODAY'S READINGS: Isaiah 40:25-31; Matthew 11:28-30. “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.”

Happy St. Nicholas Day!
Remember this sing along from our Women’s Advent Dinner on St. Nicholas a few years past? It makes a good prayer for his Feast day. Looking forward to this Wednesday and celebrating with you all again! We have a full house!
Jolly old St. Nicholas, Lean your ear this way!
Don't you tell a single soul, what I'm going to say;
Christmas Eve is coming soon, Now, you dear old man,
Listen very carefully, help me if you can.
Mary had a baby boy born on Christmas day
in a manger she gave birth and laid him in the hay
Thus the son of God came down, this I know is true
Bringing love to everyone, yes, to me and you
That he grew in holiness, and was a godly man
who suffered died and rose for us, this I understand
He taught us all the way of peace, and mercy from above
but I am learning slowly still just what it means to love
We celebrate his birth each year glad to do our part
but Jesus asks for life anew in each and every heart
Help me see the Christ in need in my neighbor too
Help me welcome Gods own joy each day the whole year through
I will be compassionate and lend a helping hand
I’m grateful for the life I have and help where e’r I can
Let me speak words kind and true, when they’re needed most
Fill me with the light of Christ, a glad and welcome host
Let my joy in giving be, childlike and true
Help me trust when times are hard, or I don’t know what to do
and slow me down to see the grace and savor goodness too
Keeping Christmas in my heart all the new year through
Thank you good St Nicholas, for your faith was true
May I cultivate your gifts in what I say and do
And kneel before the prince of peace on this Christmas morn
and celebrate the feast of feasts, Christ the Lord is born! ... See MoreSee Less
Our common Story
The Gospel tells us the genealogy of Jesus, not only for a theological reason, but also to remind each one of us that our lives are made up of bonds that precede and accompany us. The Son of God chose to come into the world by way of such bonds, the way of history: he did not come down into the world by magic, no. He took the historic route we all take.

HAPPY FEAST OF ST. NICHOLAS
“The giver of every good and perfect gift has called upon us to mimic Gods giving, by grace, through faith, and this is not of ourselves." - St. Nicholas of Myra

God, thank You for Your real
And true and good love. Thank You for St. Nicholas,
Who lived so long ago.
Will You help us be generous like him? And when we look at our stockings hanging
or our shoes at the door,
Will You remind us that
We can see You in our neighbors? God, in this Advent season, Remind us that the biggest joy
Doesn't come in presents
But in the gift of being loved and getting
To give our love away too.
Happy Feast of St. Nicholas ... See MoreSee Less
