Red, Green and Gold: Christmas in the Golden Years
Tuesday, December 19th 12:30 - 2:30 p. m.
Christmas can be a time of great joy as we gather together with family and friends. But as we get older it can also a time of shifting responsibilities, expectations and traditions. Colleen Dotzert, our Pastoral Care Intern, will lead us in some thoughts about this wonderful yet sometimes difficult time of year. Some traditions have to be changed or stopped (red), some we continue (green) and there are many treasured moments (gold). Come prepared to share your own stories and wisdom.
You are invited to share a Christmas memory that connects with your faith story. Think about events that exemplify the true meaning of Christmas, that helped to shape your faith and/or important rituals that you have kept throughout the years. If you have a story to share please indicate this on the sign up sheet on the bulletin board.
Thursday, December 21, at 7:00 p. m., at St James Lutheran Church in Baden. Sponsored by the New Hamburg Eccumenical Ministereal. Consider attending this service if you are feeling the heavy weight of loss this year. Contact Susan if you need a ride.
There will not be a lunch and games after church. However, we will have coffee for those who wish to stay and visit for a while after our Service of Carols. Bring treats to share if you wish.
A time of singing Carols and storytelling.
