RE News: Sun Dec 24

Lifespan Religious Education

What will you embody this Christmas and into the New Year? For some, the birth of Jesus is God becoming flesh. In a metaphorical view, this could mean the spiritual or feeling self becoming embodied. Every night that a fledgling part of you grows into lived expression is a holy night. We see this happen constantly with young children as they mature. However, we all evolve more fully into our truer selves, if we grow through our experiences and live with intention. This holiday season may you find another part of your holiness and nurture its birth. In our beloved community, we bear witness to the unwrapping of each other’s gifts.

Please see the following four (4) announcements:

1) This Sun Dec 24
10 a.m. RE Reindeer Games (Children and youth gather for fun and frolic during the service)
5:30 p.m. - All ages are welcome to attend the Christmas Eve Service (childcare is available for those who need it)

All children and youth are invited to perform in Children's Choir during the Christmas Eve Service. Please arrive at 5 p.m. for rehearsal.

There is no RE on Sun Dec 31 but childcare will be available.

2) The Mitten Tree
Please bring mittens, hats, gloves, and scarves of all sizes and place them on the Mitten Tree in the sanctuary.
