Coffee’s On! Island Connections continues Coffee’s On for seniors during the winter on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the YWCA!

During Advent this year, all four island parishes will be reading Let Every Heart Prepare:  Meditations for Advent and Christmas by Barbara Cawthorne Crafton.  This Advent devotional draws its daily meditations from the texts of familiar Advent and Christmas hymns, opening up familiar words to deeper theological insight.  We will meet in the Rectory Common Library on Sundays after the 10:00 service to discuss the week’s readings, and on Wednesday evenings at 4:30 we will meet with neighbors from all four parishes to share and to sing. 
December 13 at St. John’s
December 20 at St. Saviour’s. 
There are copies of the book in the office for $10.

Join us for a service of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 17th at 4 pm

The Longest Night:  Advent and Christmas are joyous times for many, but for others they are a time heavy with grief, anger, and sadness. While our culture tells us relentlessly that we should be celebrating a perfect Christmas, our very human feelings of loss or loneliness may make joy difficult.

If Christmas is a hard time for you, please consider joining the community at St. Saviour’s Church for a service of quiet prayer and remembrance, for sharing grief with one another and with the God who knows what it is to be human. No one will be asked to share more than is comfortable.  Thursday, December 21, 6:00 PM.
