Throughout the Advent story, we encounter angels whose common theme includes the line, “Do not be afraid!” Their brief messages would have fit very well in our current world of tweets and hashtags. This Advent season, we will look at the stories these angelic messengers brought to Zechariah, Mary, Joseph and the shepherds and consider how each responded to them. At the same time, we’ll look at how we can respond to their mantra to not be afraid by offering #morehope, #morepeace, #morejoy, and #morelove to our world today. Join us for services that engage all your senses with dramatic visual presentations, storytelling, and music. Our series will begin on December 3 with both 8:30 and 10:30 services throughout December, until the 24th, when we conclude on the one service at 10:30 for that Fourth Sunday of Advent.
 
Making “Meme-ing” of Advent: Your Help Needed!
With our Advent series focused on hashtags and tweet-type angelic messages, you are invited to submit memes reflecting the theme of each week. What is a meme? They are images posted on the Internet that offer variations on an original idea shared by an online community. We’re looking for messages that “fly in the face of fear” with hope, peace, joy and love. If you don’t understand memes, simply submit pictures and/or quotes that depict these things (more hope, peace, joy, love). We will pair your images with quotes to create memes and will post them on our Facebook, Twitter and website, as well as use them in worship. Please send your pictures and quotes to goodnews@mhcucc.org or drop off in the church office for Amanda or Vicki.
 
“Do not be afraid.” It is Scripture’s most repeated command. But how do we obey when every day brings bad news? Join us as we discuss how to be people of the Good News, sharing #morehope, #morejoy, and #morepeace through a study using the work of Dr. Brené Brown. 
 
Tuesday afternoons from
2 – 3:30 pm OR evenings from 6:30 – 8 pm on December 5th, 12th and 19th. 
 
Sign up on the bulletin board outside the office.
 
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”
