We begin the new church year with Advent, a season of active waiting for the fullness of the kingdom of God.
This year, over the four Sunday s and Christmas Eve, we will explore the themes: Repurpose, Return, Restore, Receive, and Rejoice. Listen to our candle lighting liturgy and watch our candle installation for words, images, and objects that express these themes.
We also have the opportunity to pray together in a nonverbal way. At the front right of the sanctuary, there is a door with the image of a candle on it. Before, during, and after the service, you are invited to come up and prayerfully add a piece of paper from one of the bowls to the image. There are more detailed instructions up at the table. Over the course of the season, we will finish the collage together.
