Service: “Letting Our Light Shine” with Jordinn Nelson Long

December 13 @ 11:15 am

Our chalice flame reminds us that we are called to be beacons in the darkness.  In this long season of advent, we gather each week to kindle our shared hopes and wait for the return of the light.  But what happens when we are afraid to let our light show?  How, amid scary times, can we find our footing, and gather our courage? Our children’s choir will perform.
