This morning Bradley spoke of how a horse taught him, "Ave everybody. You are full of grace!"

This morning, prompted by John the Baptist, and his fiery challenge, Bradley talked about the chaff in our lives that God will not let get in the way of God’s love of us. Whether we like it or not, out it goes so that we stay can remain unencumbered in God’s heart.

Looking for Jesus in our lives, in every way, every day, year in and year out, is what Advent teaches us to do. We wait upon the Lord fully expecting him to be there, especially through others. That happened on the night of Thanksgiving and the next day compliments of the good people of Washington State University and that is what drove Bradley's sermon this morning.

In this morning's sermon Bradley remembers the decency, civility, and integrity of our 41st president, George Herbert Walker Bush, and how his friendships extended across the aisle.
