2nd Sunday of Advent services at Grace Lutheran Church in Westminster
www.gracelc.org Dec. 4, 2016

John the Baptist's job was to prepare the way for Jesus. The gospel lesson
for this Sunday comes from Matthew 3:1-12.

Christmas is about Jesus. Remember this should you get lost in the
hecticness of the season and lose sight of this. Jesus is the reason for
the season.

We are mindful of the raging fires in Tennessee. The devastation of the
fires calls to our attention what is really important to us. If we had to
flee the fire, what would we really want to take with us?

Remember Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in
hope."

Found this well deserved shout out to recognize the great work of the Westminster Police

Found this well deserved shout out to recognize the great work of the
Westminster Police Dept.

Every week I hear great stories about the work of the local public safety
agencies; the Westminster Police, and the local Manchester, Taneytown, and
Sykesville police departments, the Carroll County Sheriff's Office, the Md
State Police, the Westminster Vol. Fire Dept. and all the local volunteer
fire departments.

We are very fortunate to work with such great men and women in Carroll
County. We should not take them for granted.
