SEASON OF ADVENT
Advent is the period preceding the Christmas season. It
begins on the Sunday nearest November 30, the feast day
of St. Andrew the Apostle, and covers four Sundays. Because
the day it begins changes from year to year, so does the
length of each Advent season. In 2015, Advent begins on
The word advent, from Latin, means “the coming.”
For centuries, Advent has been a time of spiritual reflection
as well as cheer and anticipation. Even the Christmas season
has become more secular with advertisers urging holiday
gift-givers to buy and buy some more. Advent still brings
joy and the observance of ancient customs. Christian families
find quiet moments lighting candles in the Advent wreath,
and children use Advent calendars to count the days until
Following worship service, we have a wonderful time of fellowship
with our friends and a great opportunity to greet visitors.
A special thanks to all who make this happen by volunteering
to serve as coffee hostess. There is a sign-up sheet in
the parish hall every month giving you the opportunity to
serve. Coffee is always served. The snack can be a slice
of cake, cookies, sandwiches, chip and dip, crackers and
cheese, etc—and recently root beer floats were a big
hit. This was never intended to be an entire meal, just
a snack; some wish to serve more and that is fine. That
is their gift to you, so just say “thanks.”
If you are not able to serve, you might consider buying
coffee, creamer, sugar, small plates, cups, napkins etc.
Please join us each Sunday for this fellowship. If you have
questions, feel free to ask one of the ECW officers: Paula,
Bobbie, Joyce or Carol.
The vestry meets at 7:00 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each
month. Meetings are open to all members of St. Paul’s.
