If you are near our mistletoe, join us this week for our Christmas/Solstice celebrations. It begins tomorrow with worship at 11:00 a.m. for the Fourth Sunday of Advent.
I finish my series on the myths of Genesis with a comparison of Joseph of Genesis and Joseph of Matthew. Two Josephs. Two dreamers. The myth of providence and power. Our bell choir will lead music. We have a lot of Christmas carols to sing! Here is the rest of the schedule:
December 18--Sunday: Christmas Dinner and a presentation by the youth entitled, "Christmas In Elizabethton 2011." Dinner at 5:30!
December 19--Monday: Tidings of Comfort at 7 p.m. A special service to acknowledge the "blue" in Christmas.
December 22--Thursday: Winter Solstice celebration. Elaine Kolp will lead us in a ritual to welcome the Winter Solstice at 6:45 p.m.
December 24--Saturday: Christmas Eve celebration with music, story, candlelight. The service is at 10 p.m.
December 25--Sunday: It is a special service when Christmas falls on a Sunday. It feels--dare I say it?--magical. The service is at 11 a.m.
