Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! First, our reminders: Our quarterly meeting follows worship tomorrow, as does fellowship to include our favorite appetizers. What will I bring . . . ?
Heading to the church now for fellowship over breakfast, the “Advent Words” of the week are on my mind. Perhaps not surprisingly, one of the words on which we will focus tomorrow is Advent, itself. The other word, oddly loaded for many people, is salvation, as we consider the promise of the season. We may see little glimpses of the grace we seek, even over coffee together. In a time that is fraught with fears and violence, you are invited to celebrate in the hope of God’s reign breaking in, day by day.
Blessings and deep peace to you, Lisa
Worship at Home Materials: We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. Masks are suggested in the sanctuary and required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.
