On the Table– November 28 through December 4

As the days grow steadily shorter and darker, we gather for Advent– that annual time of waiting for the Light. This year, we will be following the Lectionary as it tells the story of Jesus’ cousin John and the way his idealism turns to disbelief as he gradually comprehends God’s plan of ‘Immanuel’ (“God with us”). We’re calling our series The Weight for Light, and it’ll be a multi-faceted, multi-sensory exploration of Advent and the hope that comes with Christmas. We hope you can join us for the next three Sunday mornings at 10:15 at Jammin’ Java.

And don’t forget– there is still time to join our friend Mark Scandrette on Thursday night for an encounter with his family’s excellent new book ‘Belonging and Becoming’. Too, the event is hosted by some dear friends, so it promises to be an illuminating evening.

Take care, and keep looking toward the Light,
Mike Stavlund
