December 2- “Winter Holidays 1” with RevAlex
On this Sunday, we begin the joyous work of preparing our worship space and our spirits for the winter holidays. We’ll hang greenery. A tree will be erected, and covered with a multitude of lights and ornaments. We’ll also dust off our spirits and move towards restoration of our souls. We will once again lift up the great wisdom of making Merry in the cold and dark. Come, Come to share the great gift of your being!
