Every Heart Prepare Him Room

Joy to the world, the Lord is come           Let earth receive its King;                         Let every heart prepare him room   And heaven and nature sing,             And heaven and nature sing,             And heaven, and heaven and nature sing.                             - Joy To The World

In this Advent season, we are anticipating a time of great joy as the Earth receives her King. We look to a time when heaven and nature sing together in celebration of the Lord to come. How are you preparing room for Jesus this Advent season?

The child we celebrate each Christmas was born to humble parents desperately seeking shelter, a place to lay their head. How will you give shelter in this coming year? In providing love and hospitality to the stranger we can prepare room for Jesus in the here and now. Have you prepared room for Jesus? Will there be room in your heart for those seeking shelter this Christmas?
