Collect for Sunday, November 23 – Christ the King

Almighty and everlasting God, whose will it is to restore all
things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of
lords: Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth, divided
and enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together
under his most gracious rule; who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A Thrill of Hope – A Reflection of Christmas through Art and Scripture

Led by Rev. Carrie Craig

Join us during the four weeks of Advent, beginning Sunday, November 30, for a creative way to reflect on the story of Christmas. We will meet from 10am through 10:45am in the Parish Hall. Each week a passage will be illustrated in the beautiful artwork of John August Swanson and the wisdom of scholars, such as Thomas Long and Carol Newsom, who have been wrapped in these scriptures through study and devotion for many years. The passages will include A Visit (Luke 1:26-38), The Nativity (Luke 2:1-7), The Shepherds (Luke 2:9-20) and Epiphany (Matthew 2:1-12).

The Reverend Carrie Craig will facilitate this class. As art will be a focus during these four weeks, be prepared! We will have a chance to share the holy art that has inspired each of us during the Christmas season. There may even be an opportunity to create your own image as a part of your reflection.
