Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
As we continue our “Still” series this week, I will invite each of us to consider anew how we engage the holidays and holy days that make up this time of year. While this season can offer many meaningful moments to connect with our nearest and dearest, the weight of expectations and excess often gets in the way of our connecting to what is most important.
As a congregation, we offer a number of special services to help support you on this journey:
Friday, Dec 21: Vesper services at 6:00 pm and at 8:00 pm.
Sunday, Dec 24: Candlelight Christmas Eve Service at 7:00 pm.
Sunday, Dec 30: Fire Communion Service at 10:30 am.
I hope you include these special services this year, as a way of seeking out deeper meaning in this season. In whatever ways you celebrate, may the coming days and weeks connect you with a renewed sense of love and hope in your life.
This Sunday we’ll entertain the possibility that there are more enriching ways to journey through the holidays.
In faith and love,
Please Enter in Quiet
For the "Still" series of worship services during the month of December, we'll enter the sanctuary in silence, and enjoy a few minutes of quiet reflection before our service begins. Feel free to meet and greet your friends in Workman Hall or the narthex beforehand. We hope you enjoy these times of quiet during the holiday season.
