What about this season will you pass on to the next generation? Our church’s Advent theme, “From Generation to Generation,” reminds us of the ways our lives, histories, actions, and stories are interconnected and woven together. Join us this Advent season as we pay attention to the work of God, always unfolding—in and through us, together.
