This Sunday... This week marks a traditional, celebratory holiday for many of us as well as the beginning of what may be a contemplative season. Advent begins on Sunday, November 28th when we light the first candle on the wreath in our sanctuary, remembering that the light of hope, love, joy and peace has come and is coming into our lives. We invite ourselves to anticipate with expectation the birth of Jesus in our lives in new ways. First, though, we pause to offer thanks for our many blessings. While for most of us this thanks giving takes the form of a feast, others mark the day with quiet prayers and acts of mercy in the form of charitable giving. Others combine this with honoring the indigenous peoples who inhabited our nation before the arrival of European colonists. In all that we do this weekend, I pray for your safety, for your peace, and with gratitude for the many ways in which I am blessed to be among you.
