Bulletin for First Sunday of Advent
No one but God knows the hour when all promises will be fulfilled. With this first Sunday of Advent, the liturgical new year, now turning primarily to the Gospel of Mark for the whole next year, we’re told to be watchful as we wait. As if this year has not had enough of unrequited waiting! But watching simple and natural things up close might show God present and promise fulfilled more in that moment than we would see if our eyes were gazing off into the distance. The eternal is as close as a pet’s perked ears or a longtime mate’s showered skin. God might even show up in a relative with Thanksgiving pie. And if this is not enough of a tease for you to check-out worship this Sunday outside or on Facebook and YouTube at 11am, what would be? The Advent-full God at your very door?
All services include Holy Communion. Additionally, drive thru in-person communion is offered 12:30-1:30 p.m.
