Circle These Dates
Good Monday morning.
This will be a very practical note so that all of us can get some dates circled on our calendars:
- Sunday, November 27: This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. We will pray our way into worship with the lighting of the Advent candle, the singing of carols especially focused on the longing and hope for the Messiah; and the sermon will be a drama, the priest Zechariah telling his story of hope and promise, ‘”The Sacred in the Silence”.
- Sunday ,December 4: This is a great day of praise and worship. Our 8:15 service will feature “A Service of Lessons and Carols”. It will be a weaving of Scripture and music in a way that opens our hearts to the advent of our Savior. Our 10:45 service features our annual Christmas Cantata. It will include a full orchestra and our great choir. For me personally this was a highlight of my worship at Bethany last year. It was inspiring and thrilling…and will be this year! Please mark this date and invite others to join us for worship.
I will be sharing other key dates in Advent as they draw nearer, but wanted to get these to you and on your calendar right away.
I may also share another more reflective “glimpse” of grace later in the week. I – we – sure had plenty this past weekend!
See you on Sunday and have a blessed Thanksgiving,
