    “I saw in the night visions,

    and behold, with the clouds of heaven
    there came one like a son of man,
    and he came to the Ancient of Days
    and was presented before him.
    And to him was given dominion
    and glory and a kingdom,
    that all peoples, nations, and languages
    should serve him;
    his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
    which shall not pass away,
    and his kingdom one
    that shall not be destroyed.
    Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.

    Both thankfulness and being repentant flow out of the same well inside of us. Thats how I see the linkage between forgiveness and thankfulness. Being thankful for what we have in front of us makes us humble.

    A little over a month left to go - what are you doing (spiritually, personally, non-commercially) in preparation for Christmas?

    Are there readings you tend to do? Upcoming services you intend to attend? Perhaps some volunteering (or knitting or something)?

    My church has advent services on Wednesdays leading up to Christmas, starting the week after Thanksgiving. We do the Holden Evening Prayer, and it always gets me in a mood for the holidays.

    Other than that, reading through The Story, which is the Bible paraphrased into a single continuous story format. Its been rewarding spiritually to do the "Cliff Notes" version of the Bible at this time of year and see the overarching purpose of God's redemptive love.

    We, as a church, have put together about a hundred Christmas shoe boxes and got them sent off. Our pastor is giving sermons on people in the bible starting this Sunday who were at Christ's birth. We also have a Christmas Eve service.
