Good News, 11.24.09


“O God, stir the swirling times, stir the heavens, stir the unexpected, stir the wandering flock, stir the longings of our hearts.”

The Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service tomorrow night at 7:00 pm will be a beautiful evening of prayer, music, reflection and gratitude. If you are in town I hope you participate and will freely welcome all of our interfaith guests and friends. A Reception follows so if you wish to bring snacks or dessert goodies they will be appreciated. Charlene McPherson will gladly accept your assistance.

Congratulations to April Miletich and Matt Rasmussen on their wedding this past Saturday. What a joyous occasion for both families and all their friends.

Ilah Martin and Gabriella Maneira held their own during their Baptisms this last Sunday too. What a blessing they are to all of us.

This Sunday is the 1st Sunday of Advent and the new Church Year. In honor of this great occasion, the texts for the day and lingering Thanksgiving feasting memories, we will Stir Up a Cake to anticipate the Spirit stirring up our lives during Advent. You won’t want to miss this delightful worship celebration.

Before and after worship Deacon Charlene McPherson has made all the preparations for you to make an Advent Wreath with your family. Enjoy this great tradition!

Please keep in your prayers: Denise, Genevieve, Jerry, friends at Kista Congregation, the unemployed, our partners in Laurel Galan and Venda, South Africa, the hungry, the least of our brothers and sisters, and the Laversin Family whose mother Elsie Mae’s Memorial Service was held at Peace on Monday.

Blessed Thanksgiving, Pr. Steve
