Angels Among Us #donotbeafraid​ The angels that appear in the story of Jesus’ birth would have been very comfortable in our world of tweets and hashtags. Their messages were often short and to the point, their favorite line was #DoNotBeAfraid. As we look at the stories of these winged messengers to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds and their reactions to them, we will contemplate what messages we can offer that will counteract a culture of fear and bring #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to the world....

Watch Night Party/A New Year’s Eve Celebration

Watch Night Party/A New Year’s Eve Celebration

The passage of time is never more poignantly or communally felt than when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve.  Within the Christian community, we make Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter as sacred time.  But New Year’s Eve we share with all people.   Faith is partnering with two community groups to offer a Watch Night Party at the church.  We gather on New Year’s Eve to feast, have fun, relax and reflect.  We create time and space for people to be in community, connect with themselves, others and God, let loose and get ready for the year ahead.   We begin at 8PM with dinner.  Then we are invited to settle in or move around to a variety of activities throughout the church.  There will be separate rooms for: puzzles, board games, and collage making.  In addition, the labyrinth will be open and there will be a ritual for discerning what to leave and what to take into the New Year.  We will have gentle yoga sessions and not so gentle line dancing.   Shortly before midnight we move outside with fire and drumming to welcome in the New Year.  We reflect briefly and give thanks and go home happy, exhausted and renewed.   This is event for everyone who enters into the spirit of the party (without any spirits) – young, old, singles, couples, families.     If you are coming, all you need to bring is: A vegetable/salad or dessert $10 per household a candle per person any percussion instruments (including children’s toys) you have lying about the house   Keep awake...
