This Sunday we begin Advent, a time of preparation for the reminder, once again, that God is always doing new things among us. On Sunday you will be able to pick up your copy of A Surprising God, the Advent devotional that the Deacons and I invite you to read along with us. On the next four Thursday evenings (Dec 2, 9, 16, 23) from 5.30-6 I will be leading a Zoom time for checking in with one another and discussing themes and questions from that week’s devotions so far. If you would like the Zoom info, email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Also reach out if you are not able to be at worship this Sunday and would like to work out a way to get your devotional this week.
