Food for reflection from Brother Curtis, SSJE in this season of increasing light…
You are a living mirror. Bear the beams of God’s love. Let God’s light teem from your own countenance. Look upon others and be radiant with God’s love for them. They may otherwise never know how much God loves them.
Stay warm and enjoy the pristine beauty of these frigid days and sparkling, moonlit nights!
From the office at St. Andrew’s: Office Hours: Tuesday-Friday 9am-Noon
Winter Weather Advisory!!! Please keep in mind during the winter when the weather looks questionable for safe travel to call the church before you leave home to check for schedule changes. If a storm comes in on Saturday evening or Sunday, I will make a judgment by 6:30 AM about whether to hold, cancel, or delay services. Cancellations will also be announced on WMWV radio 93.5. I will also send an email out to you if you have provided me with your email address. PLEASE do not travel if it feels unsafe to you. Enjoy a Sabbath morning at home and remember St. Andrew’s in your prayers.
