Advent at St. John's - "Breaking Through"
Wednesdays in December
The Incarnation BREAKS THROUGH our anticipation and our fear to bring light and life into our lives TODAY! From the smallest crack to the widest opening, God enters our world and fills us with hope and promise. On Sundays, and throughout the weeks of December, we know that God coming, and God is with us right now!
As we gather on Wednesday evenings this Advent season on zoom, we’ll engage in song, prayer, and hearing God’s Word. This gathering will also be INTERACTIVE in nature. Each week, we’ll share photographs, drawings, poems, prose based on the week’s theme. If you have items in your computer, you will be given access to share your screen. Otherwise, you may show your contributions on camera, or read them to the group.
December 1 – “Darkness Is Holy” Genesis 1:1-19 (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89084616715)
BRING TO SHARE – photographs, drawings, poems, prose – that show the interplay of darkness and light in creation.
