Pick Up a Book to Pray With During Advent!
Advent starts next Sunday, December 3 and you are invited to participate in our Advent Devotional reading. The book we are using is called Holy is His Name: Daily Devotions for Advent by Elis Hiu-Mei Lui. Anybody who would like a book is welcome take one; they are available for pick up now. Along with the book itself you'll find a packet of material for further prayer and reflection. Use it as it suits you. You are welcome to pray with the book on your own, or gather on Mondays December 4, December 11, December 18 and January 8 at 7:00 pm on Zoom for a time of prayers and reflection as a group. See Connie+ or Terry Doyle with any questions.
