 **Today’s Message – We are in the midst of a feeding frenzy called Christmas Shopping. We may be buying gifts out of obligation because we want a gift in return. Hopefully we give gifts out of love.  Yet, even our best intentions cannot prepare to what God gave and why.  That is what we will look at today.  On this second Sunday of Advent, we will look at “Love.”
