Light precedes every transition.
Whether at the end of a tunnel,
through a crack in the door or the flash of an idea,
it’s always there, heralding a new beginning.
November is a month of transition. As we come to the end of one liturgical year and begin a new one, we come together to remember, care, learn, celebrate, give thanks, and start anew. Here’s what’s in store each Sunday during November.
November 7 – All Saints Day/Caregiver Sunday
We remember those saints who have gone before us, both known and unknown. We
remember that we are made one in Christ, and through Christ, one with the faithful down
through the ages. We recognize and honor the caregivers in our lives, community, and the greater world.
November 14 – Hunger & Homelessness Sunday
We remember our neighbors who are living on the margins of society. Those who are houseless, those who are facing hunger, those who are having to make decisions between feeding themselves and their children or paying rent.
November 21 – Christ the King/Thanksgiving
We continue our Thanksgiving Day celebration, but also on this last Sunday of the liturgical year, we give thanks in another way. In the Presbyterian Church (USA), at the Feast of Christ the King, the church gives thanks and praise for the sovereignty of Christ, who is Lord of all creation and is coming again in glory to reign.
November 28 – Advent begins
This Sunday is the beginning of the new liturgical year. Advent means “coming” or “arrival”. During Advent we will celebrate Christ’s coming through prayer, reflection, meditation, scripture, lessons, and music.
Please come and join with us during this month of transition whether in person, via Zoom, or
YouTube. All are welcome here. All belong.
