Friday, December 1


Advent is upon us. this coming sunday is first Advent, it is also Reconciler's second anniversary. 1st Advent 2004 we officially began having worship services at Chase Cafe in Roger's Park. Advent is a season of waiting and anticipation, and as such has always been a significant time for Reconciler as we have and continue to wait on what God is doing and continues to do in our midst. In this season we remember that what ever God has done or is doing it is all centered on God coming in the form of human being: The event of the incarnation is what the prophets look forward to and what we look back and from which we live out our faith. Lastly, God with us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth frames our future hope.

I hope and pray that each one of us will take time, during this busy time of preparing for Christmas, to reflect on this great and terrible event of grace that changed our world

Some announcements-
If you are going be at worship this sunday we encourage you to arrive early. The service music is new and unfamiliar to us and we'd like as many of us as possible to sing through it before service.

Remember for Christmas Eve and Christmas day we are worshiping with Immanuel Lutheran Church. Services are 6PM Christmas eve and 10:00AM Christmas day. If you plan to attend either of those services the choir of Immanuel would appreciate more voices. If you are interested in singing with the Immanuel Choir at those services contact Tripp or Larry and they can direct you to the Choir director Scott.

You are invited to a Christmas party at the Community of the Holy Trinity 16th 7PM.

In Christ
