This Sunday is the Second Sunday in Advent when John the Baptist instructs us to make the path to Jesus flat and straight – to remove obstacles between ourselves and Christ. We will explore how the flat and straight can be as enchanting as the bedecked and tinseled. We will begin with our second advent candle, lit this Sunday by Ben & Kerri Pulaski with their special guest 8 month old Lillian. The choir will sing “Love Came Down at Christmas” a beautiful Christina Rossetti poem set to music. It is our hope that each Sunday service in Advent helps to lead us to the manger with awe and wonder and to make that the centerpiece of our Christmas celebrations.
