We got our first real sighting of winter in WNY today with some actual snow on the ground. While I am never a fan of snow on days when I have somewhere I need to be, on a Sunday afternoon, it is quite lovely; and a nice reminder that the season of quiet and waiting and slowing down, is just around the corner.
For your email update this week get ready for all things Advent! A few things to note:
*We will be beginning an Advent Series called "Those Who Dream." This series is all about remembering the dreams God has for us, and it is also an invitation to walk in the footsteps of some of the great dreamers who have come before us and who we will hear about this Advent: John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds, the wise people, the prophets, and the psalmists. So please join us either live or later on for this!
*There is a wonderful daily Advent Devotional Book that goes along with this series. If you would like your own electronic copy, send me an email and I will get the link over to you. I will probably send it next week even if you don't ask lol.
*Also this Advent we will be doing a photo-a-day challenge and I want to see pics of your at home Advent wreaths. Check out the update for more info on this!
Finally, our gathering on Thanksgiving Eve (reservations will need to be made) at POP as long as we remain in the orange zone.
It was wonderful to be with all of you again this week. Stay safe, wear your masks, and be on the lookout for God.
