11th Hour Preachers Party: Advent, still
Many of us are looking at a short busy week ahead of us...only a week from now it will be Christs-mass. Much to do...but today we are focusing primarily on the sermon for tomorrow, which is technically still Advent 4.
True, some of you may have your Christmas in church celebration. For many years the small church I served shared its space with a Korean Methodist Church. It was important for us to do a quick change after services on Advent 4, decorating the church for the Koreans to have their Christmas service that afternoon. (They only met on Sunday and would not have a Christmas Eve or day service).
Whether you are preparing for Advent 4 or Christmas or both, you are welcome to the party. We are in the deep-freeze where I live so lots of goodies to fortify us and keep us toasty: coffee and a variety of teas, homemade apple crisp, oatmeal, yogurt, for starters. Pull up a chair and join the party. We'll help with ideas, comments on you sermon, support if you get stuck, and some fun too.
