November 29- 1st Sunday in Advent ...Keep Awake
This week in worship we begin the season of Advent, which is the beginning of a new year in the Christian calendar. The year starts off by......waiting. Preparing. Planning. Watching. Not the exciting countdown and ball drop that NYC offers us on January 1. Instead, we'll hear the words of Mark's "little apocalypse" and wonder what it means that something new is coming. How do we hope in the midst of trials and challenges? What did the early church understand about hope in the midst of their devastation? Join us as we seek to keep awake and alert, on the lookout for hope in a weary world.

Prophets, psalmists, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, Simeon, Anna, the shepherds and the Magi—they were all dreamers. They received, discovered, and responded to God’s dreams for the world. In Advent, we step into the mystery and awe of God’s dreams and pray they shape our reality.
This Advent season is for the dreamers in all of us—those who dream of a deeper connection with God and those who dream of a better world. It’s for those who dream of comfort and those who have given up on their dreams. It’s for those whose dreams have been crushed and for those who show us that dreams take time. Join us as we dream alongside prophets and angels, Mary and the Magi. Join us as we seek and sow God’s dreams for our world. For those who dream…
