Sunday, December 1st
Bilingual 10:00 AM Service
In the midst of frenzied shopping
and end-of-year weariness,
we spread out a purple cloth,
(a purple cloth is spread over the communion table)
read again the ancient stories,
(a Bible is placed on the table)
and light a candle in the darkness,
(a candle or an Advent wreath is placed and lit)
to celebrate a visitation.Gathered here we declare our intention to live
as if the greatest gift in the world
were about to be placed into our hands
(a wrapped parcel is laid on the table),
and as if the Giver has understood
our deepest needs, our most heartfelt prayers.Like Mary,
may we be surprised by our calling;
like Simeon and Anna,
may the years increase our faith;
like sleepy shift workers on a hillside,
may our eyes be opened;
like Joseph may we listen to our dreams;
for this season requires our creative imagination.There is a Presence in our world that asks to be seen,
who will stay awake?There is a coming to our world that seeks a welcome,
who will offer hospitality?
Even now Jesus Christ is moving towards us.
Come and join us on Christmas Eve for our Candlelight service, as we remember a night in WWII, when no lights could be lit and when our Church laid out on the front steps their candles, “lighting up the world”. This is a night in which we each remember that we let our lights shine – that Jesus came to earth so that each of us would be “the light of the earth”.Each Christmas Eve, we spend a moment remembering that star that shone so bright and lead the way for the wise men, and we light our candles to show the way for each of us to follow.
Each Christmas Eve, we joyously sing Carols together, and enjoy the presentations from Hijos del Rey, as they present their acapela harmonies and soloists who lovingly come to present to the King their songs of praise.
Come and join us!
