if you want to destroy my sweater...

tonight we got together for a little christmas fun. ugly sweaters, cotton ball lambs and the single greatest living room re-enactment of the birth of jesus. next week we will get together at our place for readings and carols...lit by candlelight. we will light the fourth and final candle of our advent wreath as we will be less than one week from the birth of our lord and savior...let him be born in us again...
peace to you,

christmas at the upper room

this sunday we will be getting together for christmas at derek and heidi's house. the kids will be dressing up and acting out the christmas story as scott narrates from the scriptures. shepherds and sheep...mary and joseph...a christmas we won't soon forget.
the new year promises some pretty great things...we will be talking and praying about that on sunday night...until then, continue to absorb the goodness of the one who came to bring us life, as you prepare your heart for his advent.
see you scott if you need directions.
peace to you,

this sunday brought to you by the letter 'a'

we prepare ourselves for the coming messiah. we quiet our hearts with reverence and awe that a child would be born to be the perfect sacrificial lamb...
the sights, the smells, the brutality of levitical worship, brought to an end in a stable manger bed.
what sights, what sounds, what smells accompany this new worship of the perfect sacrifice?
allow your heart to absorb the sweetness of this season...
peace to you,
