A time of prayer and meditation for healing
Yesterday we had a wonderful time worshipping through song and story. If you want to experience, or re-experience, all the beauty and talent, here is the full video on its own. (Note - there is about a 20 second blank spot after the Prelude that helped us transition in worship. You can wait it out or skip it, but it is there intentionally)
Many apologies that our sound didn't work this morning for the prelude. Here it is and very worth a listen (or two)!
Music and Stories of the Season!
Today we join with John the Baptist as he makes way for Jesus.
We start the season of Advent in reflecting on how we can make way for Jesus by embracing belovedness.
Feeling brokenness in or around you? Let’s attend to and hold it, together.
Does the time you have feel way too short, or boring, or meaningless? Perhaps the perspective we get from Psalm 90 and our time of worship together can breathe new hope into every morning and moment we have dwelling with God.
Join us Sundays!

What is it like to hope so intensely for a certain day when you believe something significant will happen or change? Have you had that experience recently?
Amos brings up such an intense desire for the Day of the Lord, but that is not where he ends this prophecy. He moves from the hope for a day to the hope for something never ending.
