Luke 3: 1-6
Peace- calling from the widerness

So this is Christmas!

Lynn Valley United Church prepares for the season of celebrating light breaking into the darkness with a fresh take on the stories and prophesies that have inspired generations.  Come any Sunday in the season of Advent to bathe in the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.  What we do while we wait depends on what we’re waiting for. We wait for the birth of the little one who changed time. Join us.  

Sunday, December 2    Jeremiah 33:14-16  HOPE   In a service for all ages, we will explore what God meant in the words “I will fulfill the good promise.”  We will also celebrate Holy Communion.

Sunday, December 9   Luke 3:1-6  PEACE  Amid the cries of war and dis-integration, we will listen carefully to the voice “calling from the wilderness” to see God’s healing coming to all the nations.

Sunday, December 16    Philippians 4:4-9   JOY  The birth of a baby brings many things – ask any new parent.  Mostly the world welcomes the little one with unprecedented joy. 

Sunday, December 23   Luke 1:39 – 46   LOVE  Cousins meet after a long period of separation.  Both are pregnant – each with sons.  One son is the messenger.  One son is the anointed one.  Can love flow more beautifully?
