Mary: Mother of Jesus

Perhaps no female in the history of humanity has been so talked about as Mary, the mother of Jesus. This Sunday we'll Gather to better get to know this woman who proclaimed the passionate and social justice-oriented vision called the "Magnificat" (Luke 1:46-55. We'll also encounter and celebrate another Divine Feminine/Mary figure as we observe the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which is Sunday, December 12. Interestingly, the foci of both these women is relevant this week given current political events - e.g., tax breaks and wikileak allegations, and another of this weekend's emphases - Human Rights Day. In addition, we'll light the third Advent candle - the Mary candle. The first two, in our Advent wreath created by Toni and Dick Marine, are Light and Star.

At this point, Sunday's weather forecast is for cold, so let's warm up with chili - beef, turkey, vegetarian, whatever kind you like. We'll also need the accompaniments. Our offering will be designated for the pancake mix effort.

Merry Mary Sunday
This Sunday, December 12
5:30 pm
