An Advent Request
Advent, a time of spiritual preparation, will soon be upon us. We would like to prepare a special aide for each person in our church community of faith to use as part of his/her journey through this special time. To make it truly special, we are asking each of you to make one or more contributions to it. It can be in the form of a poem, a short personal reflection, a photo – really, just about anything that has special meaning to you and reflects the thoughts of hope, peace, joy, or love. (Please indicate whether it is original or give credit to the originator.) Submissions can be made digitally. Please submit them to Sue in the church office (include email address for you please) by NOVEMBER 10. Don’t delay – if you’ve already thought of something, please send it now! Thank-you, Rev. Bob Root
