January 1: Caring and Sharing

Janet Krack, Ginny Sabol and Annette Krusewicz
Worship Associate: Janet Krack  
      The theologian Howard Thurman reminds us that the real work of Christmas begins “When the star in the sky is gone, When the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flock,…”
  To embody this idea, our service on New Year’s Day will begin in the sanctuary with a chalice lighting, reflections on caring in community, music and a time for meditation.  Then we will set up an assembly line in the Olympia Brown Room to make brown bag lunches to send to the Upper Room. We plan to prepare about 75 lunches.  Some of us will make cards to enclose in the lunches.  Please bring some Christmas cookies to share after we’re done with our work.
This will be a multigenerational service/service learning project such that families can start the New Year together by helping the Upper Room.  There is no RE class.
