Pastor's Notebook: Introducing our Advent Worship Series: Generation to Generation

Dear Church,

This Sunday marks the beginning of Advent and the beginning of a new year in the church calendar. Once more, in the midst of our holiday preparations and activities, we are invited to still our hearts and enter into the ancient story of God made flesh in the birth of Jesus Christ. The stories, scriptures, and traditions of the Christmas season have been passed down to us throughout the generations. Many of us enter this season with a swell of memories and emotions as vast as the cultural and religious rituals this holiday holds. Like a tapestry woven throughout time, the Christmas story weaves us in—to remember how God has shown up in the past, to continue the work of collective liberation, to behold the presence of God in flesh and bone.

To deepen your Advent contemplation this year, we have prepared an Advent devotional to accompany the series. Paper copies will be available at the church. Our friends at A Sanctified Art have also provided a special e-reader version of this year’s Advent devotional, which you can access on your computer and mobile devices: In order to protect their work, please refrain from sharing this link or posting it on social media.

Join us for Sunday morning worship November 27-January 1, in-person and streaming online at, as we recall how the work of God is always unfolding—in and through us. This Advent, may you remember that you belong—to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go.
Grace and peace,

Pastor Amanda
