Dear Friends,

As we approach Christmas, what do we anticipate? Does our faith suggest that we live into sentimental and fond memories of Christmas past? Instead, what could this Christmas bring? What are your deepest hopes? What would make you most full of life and love? What do you hope could be born within and around you?

I invite you to pray about these questions and then talk about your dreams and hopes with your friends, fellow parishioners, and with me. I’d love to see how the Spirit is stirring in your life.

On another topic, you should have received your statement for the year. Please make sure that you are caught up with your pledge so that we can finish the year strong. Your gifts are deeply appreciated and go a long way to help us be a special church reaching out and healing the community around us.

In Christ,

Fr. Jonathan Evans
