Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is 'the wisdom of patience'.
How patient are you? How prepared are you to wait expectantly for change? When we look at our lives and the world around us, we may be anything but patient about waiting for change. We may clamour, yell, demonstrate, and take action for change. And this certainly seems justified when what we see around us is oppression, greed, and hardship.
On this first day of the Christian season of Advent - a time of waiting and expectation - we explore the idea that 'patience is a virtue'. Is it? When?
