Faith/Love Circle Come enjoy a quiet time of fellowship and meditation during Advent at our Faith/Love Circle gathering on Thursday, December 14 at 12:00 noon in the fellowship hall. Our members are asked to bring food for the “julebord” or Christmas table, which would include holiday breads, cheese, meats, salads, and cookies. Any visitors can attend and just enjoy the lunch with us. Our hostesses will be Betty Quinn and Helen Skindlov and Pastor Gail Duba will give the devotions. We are also inviting our Zion staff for lunch. Our December Gather magazine is filled with wonderful Advent articles. Instead of our regular Bible study, we will be focusing on the devotionals on pages 24-28, with the theme of “Joy to the World.” What special gifts are you giving or receiving? How can you give the gift of time and also enjoy the gift of stillness? After our lunch and devotional, we will be filling the backpacks to be used for Comfort Kits for Lutheran Community Services’ foster children program. Thank you to everyone who has donated something for the kits. We have been collecting school supplies, hygiene products, small toys, stuffed animals, socks, blankets and snacks.
