Advent begins!

Posted by molly on 29 November 2015

IT BEGINS. The frantic, noisy pell-mell race to Christmas.

Meanwhile, back here in Advent, we’re taking a different pace—we’re moving slowly, we’re stepping quietly, we’re using whispers, and listening for a still-small voice. And you know what? We’ll get to Christmas at exactly the same time as everyone else, and enjoy the ride a lot more.  

This Sunday is the first Sunday in Advent! It’s also All Ages Church. I’ll be preaching/helping us move into a way of praying and connecting with God without words. Come Sunday to get your Alternative Advent Calendar with props to help you hush!

Leigh W is our newbie liturgist! Pray for her. Greg will musick us! Rev. Jeff is taking a needful vaca with family.

In the meantime, have a grateful grateful day tomorrow (remember: practicing and articulating gratitude is a neurologically proven way to make yourself happier!)
