This year as we wait for a baby who will change the world, we invite you to join us for our worship series called: Awed and Odd

We Christians believe in “folly”—that there is peace, love, joy and hope in the midst of the good and difficult times. This makes us “odd”—according to those who proclaim the victory of decline and death all around. It is especially in this season of expectant hope that we can instead proclaim the awe-inspiring presence of God’s reign that continually makes all things new. This is a season of odd “juxtaposition”—swords into plowshares, wolves and lambs resting peacefully together, and the “speechless” singing for joy!

You will notice that our Advent candles have barbed wire wrapped around them. The light shines through the negative so that there is peace in the midst of conflict, love in the midst of hate, joy in the midst of despair, and hope in the midst of hopelessness.

November 27: “Peace in the Midst of Conflict”

December 4: “Love in the Midst of Hate”

December 11: “Joy in the Midst of Despair”

December 18: “Hope in the Midst of Hopelessness”

Christmas Eve: 4pm family service and 7pm traditional service

Christmas Day: 10am with brunch following the service
