This Advent leading up to Christmas, we would like to invite you to engage in the spiritual practice of telling your story and listening to other’s stories in ways that are loving and life-giving. This entails being:
- Aware of where you are presently
- Learning to articulate your joys, struggles, needs, etc. and
- Listening to others with care and compassion, as we hold space for one another’s journey and growth.
Share your stories of struggle & gratitude around the Advent themes of:
- OR any part of the Christmas story that resonates with you most this year!
You are also invited to express your story through writing and your art on a tile, and together we will add to and create a FCC Christmas version of our stained glass project. This is one way we can worship and witness as a faith community. Let our lives speak together of God’s love and shalom!
I’ll be sharing more details about this initiative in the weeks ahead. In the meantime, you can start by reflecting on your own story that you’d like to share.
Last Sunday, we began a new sermon series, Becoming. Join Gary this Sunday as he dives deeper with Parable of the Sower (Part 2).
