Christ the King Sundayt: Worship at 8:00 & 10:30 am

***

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Luke 23:33-43

The Door is Open

Jeremiah’s promise of the execution of “justice and righteousness in the land” finds ironic fulfillment in the execution of Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. It appears so utterly contradictory that the king should be crucified with the criminal. This victory appears for all the world as ignominious defeat. Yet through the gate of death our Lord opens the door to paradise.

Sunday, November 24 & December 1

A beautiful poinsettia garden will again adorn the altar for Christmas. On November 24th and December 1st a member of the Altar Guild will be taking poinsettia orders in the narthex between services. The cost of each plant is $16.00. Prepayment is required. You may pick your poinsettia up after service on Christmas Day. Any poinsettia not picked up by January 5th will be given to a shut in, a local nursing home or someone in need of cheering up. On behalf of the congregation and the Altar Guild we thank you for your past orders and rely on you to once again be part of this festive tradition.

Journey Through the Wilderness of Grief

Wednesdays, December 4; 3:00 pm

Note Time Change from 3:30 to 3:00 pm
I’ve had the opportunity to lead several grief support groups in the last several years, and I have been asked to facilitate a similar group ministry here at Lake Edge. My years of working as a nurse and as a pastor have helped me to develop an understanding of the power that grief has on us. If we don’t do the work of grief, if we don’t walk through the grief rather than around it, we deprive ourselves of having a full and loving life. Unresolved grief has a way of sneaking up on us and causing havoc in our lives. If someone significant in your life died, and you think you are still grieving, this is the place for you. Please call the church office if you want to sign up. Pastor Martha Butzier
