CHLC family and friends,
This coming Sunday, December 8, is the second
Sunday of Advent. We are introduced to John
the Baptist, the one who is like Elijah, preparing
the way for the coming messiah!! John reminds
us that there is an aspect of judgement with
the coming of the messiah, and that may not
seem like good news ... but John's call to repent
is an invitation to open ourselves up to the
loving of God and God's power to purify us.
still have plenty of spots on the Christmas
Cheer delivery sign up, to take a plate of goodies
to some of our shut-in church members the week
of December 15. It is important to help these
folks remember that they are still part of our
hat and mitten tree is up for a while longer,
and this Sunday is the final one to order poinsettias
for the Christmas display. Also there are a
few gift items left on The Giving Tree by the
coat racks as we proved for one of our families
in need this Christmas.
I thank you in advance for your generosity this
in two weeks our choir and Sunday school will
present our original presentation of, "Christmas
Around the World". You will experience
some new - and very different - traditions from
cultures around the world in words, songs, actions
and food. I know it will be a treat for all!
will see you in worship!
