An Advent daily devotional by Rev. Mandy Mastros, Lancaster Moravian Church.
Your Friendly Neighborhood Hope Shop includes 25 stories of Hope Shop customers. It is an Advent devotional that shares true and hope-filled stories of remarkable people living on the streets of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Each day’s entry includes a Bible verse to consider, the story of an individual, a reflection, a question or two to ponder and a prayer. As we prepare our hearts for Christmas, let us use this book as a reminder that God’s grace and love often come to us in unexpected ways through everyday people.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Lanc Co MyHome, “a network of organizations and individuals working together to provide all the people experiencing homelessness within the Lancaster community with shelter and a place to stay.” More information about their programs and the organizations they partner with can be found in the appendix of the book.
