Advent is a journey. An Advent devotional, On the Way to Bethlehem, was recently sent to the congregation with the suggestion that everyone set aside some time each day to consider the stories in it that will lead us towards Bethlehem — stories of the prophet Isaiah, Mary and Joseph, the Shepherds and the Magi. Give some time to wonder and ponder these stories. (Contact the church office if you didn’t receive your copy.)
In addition, during this COVID-19-restricted time while we’re spending more time at home, we are invited to enjoy one of five cozily decorated living rooms interactive activities online. Each week a fresh scene will open up to a wonderful world of videoed stories and music, family friendly devotions and outdoor adventures, tasty recipes and fun Christmas crafts. The link to the first week of Advent is found at Advent 1 Living Room – Google Slides. (It will look like the photo below, but you’ll have to click on the link to find the interactive one.) Links to each new week’s scene will be found at the site.
A new living room will be added each week at https://www.cnob.org.
