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.
