Statement of Sanctuary
As a community of the people of God, we are called to minister to all
people in our world, knowing that the world is often an unloving place.

Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness.  We are challenged by

the Gospel to be agents of healing within our society.




As we continue on the adventure of Advent, there is much preparing, waiting and waiting.  We have spent time reflecting on waiting for hope and waiting for peace.  The theme for the coming week is waiting for joy.

Our guest preacher this coming Sunday is the Rev. Ben Curry, staff chaplain for Sutter General Hospital reflecting on waiting for joy.

Perhaps you have been a patient, visitor or staff in a hospital and the times of waiting can be a mix of emotion.  Have you ever waited with joy?  Perhaps for the birth of a child, but rarely in the midst of trauma or injury do we think of waiting for joy.

But for Mary and Joseph and those traveling on difficult journeys, the hope of the Lord and waiting in anticipation for the Messiah can be a time of waiting for joy.  This Sunday we will reflect on those moments.

On the adventure of Advent with you-
Pastor Jason
