During Advent, join us at 6:00pm for a soup supper then 7:00pm for the Holden Evening Prayer service. You’ll hear a brief reflection on this season of dreaming, hoping, longing, and waiting for both the birth and return of Christ.
Wednesday dates: Nov. 29, Dec. 6, Dec. 13 and Dec. 20.
To give frame and focus for our season, we will be using a resource from a group called “A Sanctified Art” (https://sanctifiedart.org/). The lectionary-based theme is “Those Who Dream,” the opening lines from Psalm 126.
Pick up a devotion at the church and begin to ponder what it means to live like “those who dream.”
Read more about the theme from the creators:
“In our study of this season’s lectionary scriptures, the opening lines from Psalm 126 jumped off the page: When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. What does it look like to live as those who dream? The prophets, the psalmists, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world. In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality. This theme is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and for those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time. Join us this Advent as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Join us as we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world.”
