See beyond ourselves - December 1, 2012

At the beginning of the liturgical year Jesus says, “There will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars.” Throughout our lives we encounter “signs”; indicators of realities we do not readily see or understand or appreciate – or would rather ignore altogether. These signs urge us to look deeper, to see beyond ourselves, to confront issues before they become disasters. During Advent we ask for humility and wisdom to realize that God’s saving presence is in our midst. Let us hear His voice as he urges us to confess our sins, to perform acts of service for the less fortunate, and to ponder His word in our lives.

On December 13th Tom Kendzia and Val Jensen will be here to present an Advent concert. The concert is entitled, “Soon and Very Soon”. From 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. in church they will perform for our school children and families. And then from 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. they will perform for our Young-At-Heart group. Come and be inspired by their Advent message.
