“...you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, ‘You shall
love your neighbour as yourself’. There is no commandment greater than these.”
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is
the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“...and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God”.
These words from the Gospel of Mark, from the Apostle Paul and the prophet Micah provide a strong framework for our lives. I am guided in my life and my ministry by them.
Welcome to Advent and thank you for visiting our site. We invite you to share worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. At Advent we practice an open table of Eucharist hospitality for the invitation comes from Christ himself. At the time of communion people may receive the bread, or wine or both as is their custom or perhaps you would prefer a blessing?
I am both new to Advent and newly ordained. I am blessed to have been called to Advent, and I hope you will find as I have that the people of Advent are warm and welcoming. We are a reconciling in Christ congregation and our doors and hearts are open to all. Advent provides opportunities for community and for service. We are all called by the Holy Spirit. I invite you to search your heart, to listen to what you are being called to do. Perhaps you will find a home with us?
O God, make us mindful, keeping us living in the present, so that memories that haunt us from our past, and worries that plague us for our future do not overwhelm us. Help us be in the now. Amen.Pastor Elaine Boone
