Dec 4: Anticipation, Fran Manly

Advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, is a time of waiting and preparation. It can be anything from a time of meditation and reflection to a mad rush to get cookies baked, presents bought and wrapped, and parties planned. Christmas is coming, ready or not. Whatever the holiday means to you, will you be ready?

Dec 9 (Friday), 7pm: Blue Christmas

The Holiday Season is, for some, a season of great sadness.  Come to the Blue Christmas Service, a time when we can, with others, acknowledge the “blue” feelings we have during the Holidays and seek comfort in caring fellowship. You are welcome in all your pain, loneliness, and sadness.  We pray that you will find hope and comfort in knowing that you are not alone.

Dec 18: Honoring Darkness, Rev. Joan Montagnes

In our orbit around the sun, we are approaching the longest night of the year: the Winter Solstice. It is a season of mystery and introspection. Let us remember the words of poet May Sarton, “Without darkness, nothing comes to birth.”
