On the Table– December 5 through 11


advent-imageAs the days grow steadily shorter and darker, we gather for Advent– that annual time of waiting for the Light. This year, we are following the Lectionary as it tells the story of Jesus’ cousin John and the way his idealism turns to disbelief as he gradually comprehends God’s plan of ‘Immanuel’ (“God with us”). Last week we indulged with John to the B. on pure idealism, offering up our earnest prayers for justice.  This week, we’ll be seeing what comes after that… and joining John in his yearning for guidance.  We’re calling our series The Weight for Light, and it’ll be a multi-faceted, multi-sensory exploration of Advent and the hope that comes with Christmas. We hope you can join us for the next two Sunday mornings at 10:15 at Jammin’ Java.

Take care, and keep looking toward the Light,
Mike Stavlund
