December 13

What a wonderful Sunday! Thank you to the choir and instrumentalists who led us so beautifully to the manger. We are continually blessed each week by their ministry. Please make sure to offer them another word of thanks when you see them this Sunday.

We are on a continuing journey as we move through Advent together. In week one, we were encouraged to Keep Awake - being faithful to tasks like kindness, mercy, justice, faithfulness, and love. Last week, we learned the importance of Being Prepared, by following John the Baptist’s call to repentance. This Sunday, we will be reminded of the visit of the angel Gabriel who comes to tell Mary that she is to have a child. The words of the angel to Mary – Do Not Be Afraid – will guide our worship this week.

I hope you will join us as we light the candle of joy and worship God together this week.
