Sunday, December 6: We mark the Fourth Sunday of Advent as we reflect on John 1:6-8 and 19-28 along with Isaiah 61:1-4 and 8-11. As we light the fourth candle, we hear "O Radix" by Malcolm Guite. As each Sunday draws us closer to Christmas, we note that the sanctuary appears increasingly festive.
Sunday, December 13: We mark the Fifth of our extended Advent Sundays and consider Luke 1:26-38 and 2 Samuel 7:1-16.

May we continue to keep each other and world in prayer, especially those who are most vulnerable, those who are grieving or struggling, and all of those on the frontline putting themselves and their families at risk to keep all of us safe. We will get through this together.

Forest Church (Ecological Spirituality Group):
This month our Three Rivers Forest Church event will be held on November 29th, the last rather than the fourth Sunday of the month. We will meet at the Bethesda Road parking lot of the Jefferson Forest for a meditation walk and a "create our own ritual" activity. We will meet at 3 pm. Everyone is reminded to wear a mask, to maintain physical distance of at least 2 metres and to bring own refreshments. The maximum number of participants is limited to 25.
