Advent at Salem – From Generation to Generation

Our advent theme this year is From Generation to Generation.  The stories, scriptures, and traditions of the Christmas season have been passed down to us throughout the generations.  Many of us enter this season with a swell of memories and emotions as vast as the cultural and religious rituals this holiday holds.  Like a tapestry woven throughout time, the Christmas story weaves us in — to remember how God has shown up in the past, to continue the work of collective liberation, to behold the presence of God in flesh and bone.

Our Advent devotional has art, poetry and reflections for the Season of Advent.  You may pick up your copy at worship.  If you are unable to pick up your copy, please let the Church Office know and it will be mailed to you.

We look forward to you joining us this Advent season.  Our Sunday worship services continue at 12:45 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church  (4040 W. Bellfort).  We hope you will also join us for our mid-week Advent services on Wednesdays (Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14, and 21) at 7:00 p.m. at Grace where we will be using the beautiful Holden Evening Prayer setting.

From Generation to Generation . . . reminds us of the ways our lives, histories, actions and stories are interconnected and woven together.  The work of God is always unfolding — in and through us.  This Advent, may you remember that you belong — to a story etched into the wrinkles of time, to generations that have come before and will come after, to a love that won’t let you go.
