GLC e-news - connecting you each Friday
View this email in your browser

Dear GLC members and friends,

What would you write to your loved ones if you were imprisoned and everything seemed bleak? Would you still feel like celebrating Advent - or Christmas? In this first video Advent devotional below, Pastor Brett shares (from Kate Bowler's Advent devotional, "season of waiting,") excerpts from Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Advent reflections, and invites you to consider how you feel and see these things in your life. We'll be sharing a video devotion each Wednesday in Advent - and sending it by email here.

If you'd like a daily reflection or to read more from Bowler's Season of Waiting devotional, you can view it online here.
As shared and folks picked up at church, here's the 
The "Less is More" devotional and calendar/poster; the Advent and Hygge, the Art of Coziness, table tents and intro/instructions

An invitation: this Saturday, 12/3, come help set up the tree and decorations, around 10am!

Blessed Advent - hope is on the way, and we are here - with each other - as a witness to that hope.

Pastor Brett
