December theme “Presence”, calendar

Here we are at the last month of 2016. I was thinking the other day that it seems like the turn of the century was just a few years ago, not almost 17! Time goes by so fast which is why it is important to try to spend some time in the present, to be mindful of the moment, to honor others and yourself with your presence. The gift of time and love and self is the best gift anyone can give or receive.

Do find time to be present in this hectic holiday season. Worshiping and learning together for an hour or so on Sunday mornings could be a good time to do this.

Happy Holidays. Blessed Be.
