The Advent Lessons & Carols Bidding Prayer and the Collect for the First Sunday of Advent remind us, “it is our responsibility and joy to prepare ourselves to hear once more the message of the Angels” and to “cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light.”

As we prepare ourselves to hear the message of the Angels on that first Christmas, we invite you to reflect on how the sins of racism, white supremacy, and anti-Black bias are evidence of our continued rebellion against God. Consider how they impact your life, your soul, and your relationship with God and with others.
