Dear friends,

Rev. Jenna Johnson has provided us with this week's devotional.  We hope that you will take time, at your convenience, to pause and reflect on God's presence and faithfulness in the midst of this Holy Season. Please share any of these pre-recorded devotionals with your congregation, or with others who may need to hear a hope-filled message at this time.

Next week, watch for a Christmas greeting from Bishop Bickerton.  Then we will take a break before we head into the new year.  In the first week of January, we will hear from our Conference Secretary, Margaret Howe, and her husband Lee Pritchard.

If you are interested in providing a devotional for us, or if you know someone who might be (clergy or laity), please contact Carol Merante ( in the Connectional Ministries office.

Reminder: there will no longer be live reflection times at 12:30 on Thursdays.

Merry Christmas!
