Advent 2020: God's Love by Mary Burroughs


"Honor thy Father and thy Mother

That the days may be long

Upon thy earth which the Lord thy God giveth thee."

-Exodus 20:12

God's Love

God is always with us, when we fall, he picks us up.

Because Jesus died for you and me,

I can live boldly for him.

Let each of us spread the word and joy

that Jesus Christ is alive in our hearts today and always.

His mercy, love, and strength are new every day.

When we fall he is there to pick us up.


Heavenly Father, thank you for your love and care. Your grace and mercy surrounds me daily.

Deaconess Mary Burroughs


Advent 2020

Join us in a time of reflection, anticipation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2020.

Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.

Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline. Chart and journal for yourself what God has done, what God is doing, and what God is illuminating for you in this season.

Mother Burroughs and Cynthia

It was so good to see and hear you during virtual service this morning. What a lovely advent reflection. I hope that we soon can return to our pews at Metropolitan.
