Throughout the 4 weeks of Advent, we have been preparing, looking and listening for signs of God's coming into the world. This Saturday night and Sunday morning we celebrate the miracle of the incarnation - God in flesh. Born to a poor young girl in the most humble of circumstances, witnessed by shepherds and goats and angels - and by those of us who gather together in his name.
At St. Matthew's we will gather Christmas Eve for a service of Holy Communion filled with Christmas carols and special music and ending in candlelight. Rev. Paul Brndjar will preside and Paul Bellan-Boyer will preach. The service begins at 7pm. Then on Sunday we will have a small informal communion service at 11am, Rev. Judith Spindt preaching and presiding.
May God bless us, each and every one, this Christmas season.
