It's Almost Stir Up Sunday!

The phrase "Stir Up Sunday" comes from the opening words of the collect appointed for the Sunday before Advent (that would be this coming Sunday, 11/22), which for several hundred years was, "Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people..." We now use a different collect on that day, but the term endures as a reminder that it's time to "stir up" your fruitcake to give it a chance to age a bit before Christmas!
