This daily guide offers daily prayers, readings and hymns for Advent and Christmas. Many of the prayers and scripture readings reflect the Advent theme of the week. We believe this guide will help you as individuals, roommates, groups, and families to enter into the story of the gospel in new and deeper ways. Our goal is not to load you down with more tasks in an already busy life, but rather to provide you with tools to help you experience God’s goodness more fully this season and beyond.
November 4th’s worship service will be abbreviated from 10 – 10:30, followed by our Marathon Outreach at Clermont and Lafayette.
Every year since 2011 we have continued celebrating All Saints Sunday by witnessing the illustration of the “race of faith to glory” that is the NYC Marathon. As a congregation with no physical building we have used this opportunity to be kind to our neighbors, celebrate with them, and share with them news of our church’s presence and ministries. So once again and starting at 10:30 AM immediately following our All Saints Sunday special service, we will engage our neighbors during our annual NYC Marathon outreach on Clermont & Lafayette Avenues just outside the Temple doors. We’ll all head down for the first wave of runners in order to hand out home-baked goods and invitations to our church. This is a unique opportunity for our intentional but respectful witness so don’t miss out!
*November 4th is also Daylight Savings so clocks should “fall back” an hour the night prior.*
“Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
The Reverend Jamison Galt
There is more than a formal difference between the soul that is merely unaware of its sins and the soul that is obstinately unrepentant; and the same is true of society as a whole. Once a person or a people comes to recognize an evil for what it is, even if that evil is then allowed to continue for a time, in whole or in part, the most radical change has already come to pass. Thereafter, everything—penitence, regeneration, forgiveness, rebellion, reconciliation—becomes possible. for what it is to be human has been, in some real way, irrevocably altered.
