Collect


Collect for the First Sunday of Advent

O almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Reblog: Rabbi David Wolpe

Okay, so strictly speaking this isn't a reblog because the original wasn't a blog post. But this is an excellent article from the Rabbi of Los Angeles' Sinai Temple. (My favorite retort to the "spiritual but not religious" sentiment is "I'm religious but not spiritual," first heard courtesy of Brother Peter Totleben of the Dominican House of Studies in DC, but this takes a different tack.)
