"Every year we celebrate the holy season of Advent, O God. Every year we pray those beautiful prayers of longing and waiting, and sing those lovely songs of hope and promise." - Karl Rahner
Advent is upon us. We have begun well and may continue our focus throughout this sacred season. Our worship will mark the progress of the season. This Sunday we will continue our sequence of extraordinary preludes as we begin our worship. During the procession you may see 'Saint Nicholas' who will help share this part of our history with the children during chapel.
Several people have commented how much they have enjoyed the Advent devotionals, which remain available on the Welcome Desk and kiosk. The #adventword has also been a great way to stay focused on the season daily. Even if you aren't on social media, you can see some of the posts through our website (see the 'Social' tab under 'Media', or click here).
I also want to note the Blue Christmas service that will take place next Wednesday at 5:30. While this season is noted for hope and expectation, it is also very difficult for many. Perhaps most especially for those who are mourning or experienced a loss recently. The hope with this service is creating time and space to acknowledge our loss, to unite in prayer and move toward the Incarnation in peace. I look forward to seeing you in church as this season continues.
