God Announces the Way; Servants Are OpenGuide: The Faith That Formed JesusWhen we look at a friend's photo album, some of the most intriguing pictures are the ones of our friend's grandparents and parents. We stare into those faces not only to look for some resemblance but also to discern something of the character, the traits, the personality of our friend.This week, we will use the first chapters of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in pursuit of our growing desire to know Jesus more completely, that we might grow in love with him more intimately, because we want to follow him more freely.Readings:1. His Name is John (Luke 1:5-25, 57-66)2. Nothing is Impossible for God (Luke 1:26-56)3. Go Ahead and Marry Her (Matthew 1:18-24)Prayers:1. A Prayer to Begin Each Day2. Mary's Song of Praise (Luke 1:46-55)3. Zechariah Praises the Lord (Luke 1:67-79)4. The Earth Rejoices in Hope of the Savior's Coming (Alternative Opening Prayer, Third Sunday of Advent)5. Come Rouse Us From Our Slumbering (Intercessions, Morning Prayer, Second Sunday of Advent)
