First Sunday of Advent - Happy New Year!


As part of our service today we marked the First Sunday of Advent and the beginning of the new Church year by lighting our first Advent candle and by hanging the first special decorations on our Jesse Tree. These decorations were blue anchors inscribed by each parishioner with what there is in our lives, community and world that gives us "Hope".

In her sermon the Rev. Marilyn Mason spoke of the challenges of "putting on the armor of light" and reminded us that "All the paths of the Lord are love and faithfulness to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies."
