The Faith Journey Continues...
 
A Prayer by Henri Nouwen

Dear Lord,

Give me eyes to see and ears to hear. I know there is light in the darkness that makes everything new. I know there is new life in suffering that opens a new earth for me. I know there is a joy beyond sorrow that rejuvenates my heart. Yes, Lord, I know that you are, that you act, that you love, that you indeed are Light, Life, and Truth. People, work, plans, projects, ideas, meetings, buildings, paintings, music, and literature all can only give me real joy and peace when I can see and hear them as reflections of your presence, your glory, your kingdom.

Let me then see and hear. Let me be so taken by what you show me and by what you say to me that your vision and hearing become my guide in life and impart meaning to all my concerns.

Let me see and hear what is really real, and let me have the courage to keep unmasking the endless unrealities, which disturb my life every day. Now I see only in a mirror, but one day, O Lord, I hope to see you face to face.

Amen.

An Invitation to all Ladies of Fairfield Grace
To all Ladies of FGUMC,

We will meet next Monday December 7  via zoom at 7:00 pm. Our format will be different that evening. We will be sharing a biographical portrait of someone whose life and faith inspire you. There are so many possibilities. You can select a biblical figure or someone living or deceased. Have fun discovering about their life and faith. Check with Lyn Spaulding (203-520-6951) ahead of time if you want to have a picture displayed. Please share why you chose this particular person. I said 5 minutes , but being from the south mine is more .

Blessings ,

Karen

Advent Study
God Came Near
Nest Session:
Thurs, Dec 3

at 7:00 pm via Zoom

Adult Education team announces an Advent Study on Thursday nights at 7:00 pm via Zoom.  The meetings will be based on RightNow Media's video God Came Near by Max Lucado.  There will be a short discussion following the video.  Dates are Dec 3, 10 and 17.

In the midst of the gloom of winter, the darkest and coldest of seasons, Christians still wait with great anticipation for the happiest season of all, Advent. Travel back in time and relive the coming of Christ to Earth, as He gives up His throne next to God the Father to enter this world as a baby born in a manger. Filmed at England's beautiful Blockley Church, join acclaimed author and pastor Max Lucado as he provides insights on the season of Advent.

Please scroll down in this email if you have not visited the RightNow Media collection for a link which will take you to the site.  Once there, you can explore the thousands of videos and resources available to you.
