"The Good News"

It's be

ginning to look a lot like Christmas--lamp posts throughout the streets of downtown are decorated for the Holiday. The annual hometown parade filled the neighborhood with holiday cheer this past Sunday--including marchers from Feed and be Fed and The Garden Church. (Pictures on Instagram) Tonight the garden will be open for 1st Thursday and will offer caroling lead by two of our multi-talented garden volunteers.

On the church side, our Christian Scripture begins with the Gospels which means Good News in English. The same word in Greek is euangelion which was commonly used by the Roman Empire to announce successes in battles. The "good news" of the day would be a military success. When we in the church talk about good news we are talking about something quite different from the government's political announcements, we are talking about the good news that in Jesus we have the gift of grace and the promise of life eternal.

This Sunday marks the second Sunday in the season of Advent. The weeks leading up to the season of Christmas which begins on December 25 and lasts for 12 days. (Does that remind you of a certain song?) On the second Sunday of Advent we often have the story of John the Baptist. A cousin of Jesus' John was known as a backwoods preacher who dressed in camels hair and lived off the land. Intrigued? Join us Sunday to hear more.

In Faith,

Rev. Amanda
