Advent 2012

The journey continues Sunday, December 23 9:30 worship service as we celebrate the Fourth Sunday of Advent. As this season of sparkle and bright unfolds around us the welcome beauty of love is found, woven into the simplicity of every moment.
May love flow from our hearts with abundance filling every moment with the season’s gifts of hope and peace and joy. May it be shared truly and deeply that all who encounter it, be charged with its message and become, themselves, the agents of love. And may our children, who love without reckoning, teach us the truth of this most precious gift–we are nothing without each other. Let us live, then, in the blessing of love.

Advent 2012

Please join us at our 9:30 a.m. worship on Sunday, December 16.  The Advent journey, which began on December 2, 2012 will continue into week three.  As this season of “sparkle and bright” unfolds around us the transforming wonders of joy await discovery like shimmering sugar crystals on a favorite treat.  This Sunday the candles of Hope and Peace will be re-lighted.  The third candle, JOY, will be alight for the first time this Advent Season.

May we create joy in all our surroundings as we share gifts, meals, and simple pleasures with family and friends. May the easy gift of a smile bring the power of joy’s touch to those we meet through these busy days. And may we experience the joy of this season as though with the eyes and hearts of children that we might be transfixed by power of what could be.

Advent 2012


The Advent journey, which began on December 2, 2012 continues into week two.  Please join us at our 9:30 a.m. worship on Sunday, December 9 where the candle of Hope will be re-lighted and the second candle, the candle of Peace will be lighted.

 As this season of “sparkle and bright” unfolds around us, the silent prayers of peace lie like stars hidden in a clouded night.  May we inspire the world with peace. May we touch it to our lives that in every place of stress, frustration, or fear, we might feel the presence of peace easing our hearts and transforming our lives. And may we share the its healing power with our children, that they might become the inspiration through which peace makes its way to a new yet-dreamt-of world.
