By this time next week most folks will be feeling both the joy of the season and its rising stress. NBC, CBS, Instagram and others have already begun bombarding us with demands on insufficiency. More than any other year I am personally challenged to embrace Advent for spiritual refreshment. Our theme this year is REST. By faith, Christmas will be a joyful season of spiritual growth and renewal.
I am very excited about our time this coming Sunday. Providentially our topic is a perfect fit for Thanksgiving and current events. The title is ironically – "Quid Pro Quo, Can we give with no strings attached?" This question is a cornerstone to the Christian message. We will explore Matthew 20:1-16 and discuss questions on giving and the economy of relationships.

You are loved, Christ is King
