This season of Lent we are focusing together on how we can learn to Listen for Grace as individuals and as a faith community. But how do you actually listen for God’s grace — and discern your own opportunities to be a blessing by extending that grace to others?
Throughout this series we will find Grace in unexpected places and unexpected ways. In the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, I think there is a tendency to read the story as “they messed up, so they got kicked out.”
As we near the final countdown of 2017, our church still faces a deficit in funding that will enable a successful close to this year before we look forward to new opportunities for ministry together in 2018.
This Sunday, which is both the fourth Sunday in Advent and Christmas Eve, I want to invite you to a wonderful celebration – our traditional First Church Christmas Eve Candlelight services in the Sanctuary at 11:00 am, 3:30 pm, 5:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 9:00 pm, and 11:00 pm.
