Fourth Sunday of Advent: We See God in Each Other
This week we return to Mary’s experience. After receiving the news from the angel, she retreats to her cousin Elizabeth’s house. When Mary arrives (perhaps unannounced), Elizabeth doesn’t just welcome her—she is filled with the Holy Spirit and speaks a blessing upon Mary as her own child leaps and kicks within her womb. She sees how God is at work and names it out loud. In this moment of profound solidarity, Mary and Elizabeth see the divine in one another. From generation to generation, we can see how God is at work in our relationships. The way we see the divine in each other impacts how we live and move in the world. When we view every human being as a child of God, we generate a different world.
Today we celebrate our annual lessons and carols service with our college students reading the scriptures. Special music will be shared by our bell choirs. The Senior Choir will be singing.
ERUCC also holds a worship service at 8:30 am in the historic Trinity Chapel, 10 W Church Street.
