We have been working together to make plans for Adult Spiritual Formation during Advent that will mix past St. George’s traditions with some new offerings.
We want to continue the Advent meditations that have been posted online. We think this is a wonderful way for parishioners to share their faith. Please contact Gary or Ruth in the church office if you wish to take part.
We want to introduce an ongoing monthly Seniors Lunch on the second Thursday of each month. This month that will be on Dec. 13. Mother Lauren will plan educational, spiritual, and social programs.
Mother Lauren will also lead two Sunday morning adult forums after the 10:30 a.m. service, one on Dec. 9 on Readings in Advent, and one on Dec. 23 on the Christian Year.
We will also revive a Wednesday noon service of Holy Eucharist that will be followed by a Bible Study (bring your own brown bag lunch or other snack!). Parishioners can attend one or both each week.
Gary will continue the practice of Wednesday Morning 7 a.m. Meditation during Advent.
Other than the 7 a.m. Morning Meditation, all of these programs will be a way for us to explore building a fuller midweek ministry at St. George’s.
More will be coming in January and in Lent. We both believe that interim times in congregations offer a time to experiment to see which old and new things might work on an ongoing basis.
We hope you will join in as the Spirit moves you and as you are able.
Yours in Christ,
