Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I literally bought my turkey on Monday night and am very grateful that it was not frozen! I know that I am not alone in preparing for and getting ready to enter the festive, end of the year in new and different ways. It is my hope that you all are finding meaningful ways to continue to celebrate and continue traditions.
It is in that spirit that I hope you will be able to join us for LAC’s FIRST virtual advent workshop this Sunday, November 29th at 3:30pm
(via Zoom). Please register [LINK
] so you can receive the Zoom information as well as instructions for picking up small Advent packs that will including some of what you will need to bring some of the Advent cheer to your households. We will be sharing our homemade wreaths with one another, having a cookie decorating session led by Samantha Udondem and sharing a story with one another!
Even if you cannot make the workshop on Sunday, you are invited to create a wreath at home and send us a picture of what you have created so that it can be featured in worship later this month. Patty Towle has created a lovely how-to guide for wreaths
. If you need candles or a Styrofoam wreath form, please send me an email
so we can coordinate that.
Advent is one of the long “waiting” periods in our church calendar. For four weeks, we walk alongside the blessed Virgin Mary as she and we await the birth of Jesus Christ. Waiting isn’t easy, so often that time is almost always filled with stuff, be it work, school, family, changing schedules, holidays and all of the other things that are expected of us from the world around us.
All of our Advent activities and notes about our worship for this month are posted on the Advent page
on the LAC website! Please don’t hesitate to look here if you need a reminder or are looking for anything Advent-related this year!
Blessings, and I look forward to waiting with you!
