Weekly Update - 12/18/09

Hello all,
Greetings on this grey and misty Friday. Its been a lovely day, with a gentle softness warming the land. Our service this Sunday will celebrate the wonders of winter and this holiday season. Then join us on Christmas eve for a lovely candlelight service. And if you are traveling, and not in town for me to say this in person, I do wish you the very best in holidays. ~Eva

Sometimes the more natural elements of this season get lost in all the shopping and hectic Christmas plans and parties. But on this Solstice Day, we pause and reflect on what nature has to tell us about how to be better humans. We’ll sing lots of the songs of the season that celebrate our joy at this time of year. Rev. Eva Cameron, Staci Chananie-Hill (Worship Associate)
