Pastor’s Corner – December 2, 2018

We are amidst the hustle and bustle now, this season is such a mix of emotions.  Every year I hear people say, ”I am trying to change focus this year, or I want to settle and ground myself for the holidays.”  There is a strong desire for people to find themselves during this season and there should be.  The holiday season draws us near family and people who make the times memorable and who have supported our growth.  This can be hard for the same reason, because if we have lost people in the year or those relationships have changed, this is the time we miss what was.
 
I invite youth this season to try one thing to ground yourself and change the focus this season.  You should prayerfully choose what will matter for you.  Do not overdo it, be gentle with yourself.  Choose one new tradition that makes you slow down, like our Solstice Service with the Jewish community.  Find one way to learn something new this season, like listening to all the sermons for the season on our website.  Or if you are missing someone, find a way to gather with people, join us for the Aging Well or Messy Worship this month.  Finally, be sure to culminate the season by joining us on Christmas Eve to remember the story of who we as a people who follow love born in a lowly stable.
 
Finally, I want to celebrate this year of ministry.  Advent officially begins the new Christian year and it is good to offer my thanks for the past year. We have welcomed 600+ people through our doors with an Easter Egg Hunt and Trunk or Treat.  We have welcomed 7 new members by profession of faith and 2 new transfers. Together we have mourned the loss of dear friends and family and spent time remembering their contributions to our lives.  And as always I give thanks for each conversation I have had with people who are growing their faith with our God.
 
As we reflect and turn toward the manger, blessings and prayers to each of you.  

Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler
