It’s almost time to turn ourselves toward Advent – the season of waiting and contemplation before Christmas. One special tradition is the LIGHTING OF THE CANDLES OF THE ADVENT WREATH. For each Sunday, we would like to have a family light the candles of the wreath and do a short reading at the start of the service. At IUC, families take many, many shapes – singles with or without children, couples, grandparents/grandchildren – and we love and honor them all. Let Pastor Carol know if you would be available for this special Advent ritual on Dec 6, 13, or 20 (we already have someone for Nov 29).
We’ll go CHRISTMAS CAROLING in the neighborhood on Sunday evening, December 20, and welcome many voices, hands, and dancing feet for our CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE – watch for more information.
