Advent Is IMPERATIVE! HOMILIES AND OCCASIONAL THOUGHTS - November 27, 2016 ... called to make the pilgrimage to God's mountain.

The second command, "Let us walk in the light of the Lord," is spoken to the House of Jacob, to Israel, the people to whom God has already taught his law.

Hope YOUR DAILY TRIPOD - November 25, 2016 ... death no longer exist, in that place where we join the chorus praising and adoring God.

I think Jesus had hope in mind when he told this brief parable. God, who ...http://yourdailytripod.blogspot.com/2016/11/hope.html
