 'Tis the Advent-Christmas Season!

Our advent theme for this year is, "Waiting in the Darkness." We all know the Advent longing and waiting embodied in, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" in its minor key.  Much good grows in darkness, in dark rich soil.  But waiting is also difficult and it helps to do it with one another.  That's our hope for this Advent and we have plenty of opportunities to be with each other. In addition to Sunday morning services that will nurture us through the arc of the season starting November 30th, we'll have these gatherings:
Taize - 6:30-7pm on December 18th: Taizé is a quiet, meditative service by candlelight filled with chants, short readings and silence. During this season of advent waiting, these services will offer us space to enter, wait and grow in the darkness together. This Advent practice offers a place to realize the wonder Psalm 131 proclaims:  "I have calmed and quieted my soul."
The Longest Night - 7pm on December 21st: The Longest Night service, sometimes known as Blue Christmas (as in feeling blue), is an Advent service of comfort. As it's name suggests, it takes place on or near the longest night of the year, the winter solstice; a time of darkness in the heart of winter. In this season of glad tidings and great joy, it is both important and authentic to acknowledge that grief and sorrow are also at work in our lives. The Christmas story is not purely about joy, light, and peace, but about joy in the midst of sorrow, light in the midst of darkness, and peace in the midst of turmoil.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service - 9pm on December 24  in the North Sanctuary.  The sermon is entitled, "What Do the Angels Say?"

9:15 a.m. - Christian Education for all ages

10:30 a.m. - Worship  in the North Sanctuary.
