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.
