Advent begins!  On November 28th, we began our service with the lighting of the first Advent Candle, the candle of hope, lit by Carey and Alexa.  Albert led us in the Prayers of the People, reminding us to “fear not” for God is with us.  Stephen brought us God’s word, with reflections from Brother Lawrence, and thoughts on practicing the presence of Christ in our all-day, every day lives.
