CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS PROJECT:
The children will be making Christmas stockings and ﬁlling them for the adults who come to our Loaves & Fishes program on Tuesday mornings. We are asking parishioners to consider donating items for ﬁlling the stockings. We can use grooming items such as soap, hand lotion, toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, combs, deodorant, etc. We can also use gloves, socks, small scarves, sewing kits, manicure sets, nail polish, jewelry. Playing cards, pocket calendars or day planners are also good gifts. Hard candy, gum and mints are also nice. Because the children of the Day School provide stockings for any children who come to Loaves & Fishes, the stockings we ﬁll will be for adults. All the gifts will need to ﬁt easily into a 6” X 18” stocking. The donated items may be left in the church ofﬁce or in the Production Company Sunday school room upstairs. We will need the donations before Saturday, December 12th.
ADVENT LESSONS & CAROLS Join us at 5:00 p.m. for a very special service of Advent Lessons and Carols by our choir members and led by our Organist and Choirmaster, Gregory Eaton.
This service is marvelous alternation of Advent readings, carols sung by the Parish Choir, and congregational Carols. Advent is a time to reflect on our relationship with God, to prepare to celebrate the Incarnation at Christmas, and to begin another liturgical year. Please join with those who offer music in this parish as we again begin this journey together with the God who has redeemed us all. This replaces the weekly 5:00 p.m. service this week. (No Eucharist in Lessons and Carols)
The service will be followed by seasonal refreshments and Tree Decorating in Kinsolving Parish Hall.
PARABLE & The Power of Table Fellowship
Pub Church 5:30-7 p.m. at Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd.
PARABLE is now meeting on a weekly basis. Providing regular opportunities for folks in Austin to interact with some of our community’s most interesting individuals, PARABLE is a church about coming together and discussing issues of the heart, mind, soul, and spirit. While we hardly ever reach an ideological conclusion at PARABLE, this sort of concrete resolution is not the goal of the program. Rather, PARABLE is about the journey and the conversation, about respect toward differing opinions of the other, and about enjoying food, drink, and excellent music together with strangers and friends. Often led by NPR’s John Burnett, Front Porch founder Steve Kinney, and other notables, this platform for thoughtful conversation with folks of all sorts about the things that matter is what we believe church is all about. Communion at PARABLE is radically open to all, as we seek to recover the power of table fellowship before Jesus got turned into a religion.
