Gracious God, we offer you thanks and praise for this season of anticipation, this season of
Advent. As we prepare for the birth of your son, we share our tithes and offerings with the joy
and excitement that is common as one anticipates the birth of a new child. Bless these gifts in
your Holy Name. Amen. (Copyright General Board of Discipleship. Used by
