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.

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!
