Marilyn’s Moment:It was a touch ironic that after writing about how much I like to write in our October 25th newsletter that I missed the deadline for the first of November’s editions!  The challenge to be onboard with the many activities and new friends being made at Moore must have confused my deadline-oriented brain.  So, let’s try once again! Was your Thanksgiving all you hoped it would be?  (If not, give thanks now!)  Did you find time to truly give thanks without immediately immersing yourself in Black Friday deals that started long before Friday?  (If you didn’t, what’s wrong with right now?  Give thanks!)  Did your favorite team lose this year?  (If so, remember you are a winner in Jesus’ eyes!  Thanks be to God!)  Are you rushing into Advent wondering how everything will get accomplished before the next BIG deadline:  Christmas Day?  Take a pause for perspective. All is calm!  Silent stars are still in the sky.  The angels will proclaim good news – open your heart as well as your ears.  Joy is in the world because the Lord has come, is here and will come again.  So, good Christians all rejoice!  We are on the brink of something wonderful. We will walk through Advent with beautiful music in worship.  We will celebrate with friends and family opportunities that tend to come only once a year without conscious effort!  We will light candles that remind us to pause and receive each new gift as just that…NEW!  We will give ourselves away in offerings, in service, in gifts to each other and especially in a new way on Christmas Day as we – as a church – share a meal with those who might not be able to have a feast of their own! Join me in all the possibilities because we are stronger when we walk together.  Plus, each of us is walking with the Light of the World so here is tangible power!  If darkness tries to overcome it … it will fail!Let the season of a new Christian year bring you into an adventure of the daily news:  Jesus is being experienced in a new and unique way every day!
