With the first Sunday of Advent we begin a new year in the Church, and with a new year we have new opportunities dawning for how we grow together in the body of Christ. How will we, as a whole community, come to resemble the love and way of Jesus more fully in the year ahead of us? That question is at the heart of everything I (James Joiner, Associate Rector) am dreaming up for our Adult Education and Formation offerings this year, a project we’re calling Lift Up 2021.
Welcome to a place of connection and love.
Just a note of thanks, gratitude and love. I know that this Thanksgiving will not be what you imagined regardless of whether or not you can be with your family. People will be missed. Yet we are continuing to find ways to connect. Advent will be full of opportunities for joy and hope and love. Please continue to find us online and know that we miss you and are looking forward to the start of a new year. It starts now! Advent 1. This Sunday.
