Greetings in Christ Jesus,

How fast the time does go. A new church year is here. Happy Advent! As some wise, I think, person once said: the older you get, the faster time seems to go. Time really moves fast for me. How about you? Do you know the only thing faster than the speed of thought? It is the speed of forgetfulness? Comedian Rita Rudner “Men forget everything; women remember everything. That’s why men need instant replays in sports. They’ve already forgotten what happened.” A. A. Milne: “Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?”

Here is something you definitely do not want to forget! Friday December 19, come to the Senior Saints Luncheon. Bring your sack lunch. Beverages will be provided. If you have a favorite Christmas dessert, please bring some to share. Santa will not be able to attend this year, but he is sending a couple of his elves. Please bring a white elephant gift to exchange. White elephant means something you no longer want or need, but somebody might enjoy it, please no pink elephants. What are they? I do not remember! But do remember to come. The elves want to meet you.

May the joy of the good news of Christmas bless you! God did not forget to send a Savior. What love! Our sins have been paid. We have eternal life. Remember to share this good news. Maxine and I wish you a blessed Advent and a joyous Christmas!

In Christ’ Love
