This Year we begin our cycle again
YEAR 1:  The Condescensions of God  !!!

God, Who is awesome Love and creator of all things,
wants His people-  that’s YOU and ME—  to know Him.
He wants you and me to enter eternal relationship of love with Him– Father, Son and Spirit.
He wants YOU and ME to be ONE with Him now and  ALWAYS!!
God reaches down to us to lift us up to Himself, to hold us close to His heart!

Journey with us this year and discover
the astonishing and tender ways Our Loving God reaches down to us–
the ways He condescends to us–
the ways He touches us where we are
to bring us into His eternal Life of unending LOVE!!
