Notes from our Pastor

Bishop's letter for December

Loving God made flesh —
as we rush through the days of Advent
busy about many things –
our minds full,
our hearts racing,
our bodies weary,
from the mad pursuit to prepare for Christmas, 

slow us down 
wake us up
open our eyes
to see you right here, right now
in front of us
in the lines of traffic
we want to rush past
in the preparations 
we want to finish  
in the people we want

to move out of our way 
in order to meet you —
who has already come
to this place, 
to this moment
right here
right now –
Love made flesh, dwelling among us. 
We pray through Christ 
who lives and reigns 
with you 
and the Holy Spirit.

Memorial Service for Pat Plue, December 10,
Tuesday, at 11 a.m.

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of Pat Plue. She was called back to our Heavenly Father on Tuesday night. Please keep her family in your prayers as they mourn her death.
A Memorial Service for Pat Plue will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday in the church. Everyone is invited to a luncheon following the service. Although not necessary, if anyone would like to contribute something for the luncheon, i.e. a green salad and maybe a fruit salad as well as additional cookies/bars/desserts it would be appreciated.  
To help us plan, please let Judy Upton know if you are going to bring something
