Our New Nativity Video!!!!

We're pleased to debut our nativity video - My Heart is the Manger!

A few weeks ago, we asked you to submit your nativity photo.

To celebrate the beautiful themes of "My Heart is the Manger,"
we thought it would be lovely to showcase all the different nativities we could find,
and you filled our inbox with photos!

As we started to go through them, we were overwhelmed at the variety. 
They represented families, churches, schools, and communities.

But the common theme was the story... 
... that beautiful story of God entering our world as a child, 
and the loving family that embraced him that first Christmas night.

Please enjoy our new video, My Heart is the Manger. 
And when you're finished watching, please feel free to share the link with your friends 
via email, on your blog, facebook page, twitter account, or any other online space!

Happy Advent One!

We kicked off the day with a 3 hour carolling session at the beautiful Allan Gardens Christmas Flower Show. This is an annual event for us, and the start of our Christmas season. We sing in the beautiful Victorian palm house, surrounded by stunning flower displays, happy families, and children making ornaments.

The Advent Wreath at St. John's York Mills.

Tonight, we had an Advent Carol Service at The Gathering. Our worship was built on three scripture readings that tell the promise of a coming king. For each reading, we had a summary, some dialogue, and a song of reflection. Add in an intimate Communion, and the evening was a wonderful welcome to the Advent season.

The countdown to Christmas had begun!
