Come, And Meet The King

The shepherds didn’t bring gold to the manger. They didn’t bring frankincense or myrrh or costly treasures. They didn’t bring a gift at all.

Thy Will Be Done

“Thy will be done.” The words are familiar to us. Memorized and held close against our hearts, this prayer was given to us by Jesus himself in Matthew 6.
