Advent

Advent begins today, as we prepare for Christmas and the great gift on which we rest our hopes.

In this season, I want to offer an . . . alternative Advent song. You know, just so that you've got something to sing along with O Come O Come Emmanuel.

In which the Kindom of God breaks through

I don't do a lot of writing on this blog about what is happening at the church I serve, Johns Creek UMC in suburban Atlanta. I try to use the blog to explore bigger ecclesial and theological issues, but all ecclesiology and theology is done in context, so I thought I would share some news about what is happening at JCUMC. Last Sunday, November 6, the church broke ground on a new sanctuary. The clergy and congregation are VERY excited. This event was a long time coming.

In conjunction with the groundbreaking, the church was blessed to work with Mission Guatemala in opening a feeding center in the community of Pacaman. Thanks to this feeding center, 60+ previously malnourished kids will get a nutritious meal every day. Take a look at this great article from the Mission Guatemala website.
