Come to the Manor, the table is ready,  “Mountain Madness”
 Isaiah 64:1-9  •  1 Corinthians 1:3-9  • Mark 13:24-37
First Sunday in Advent, Hope

We are the Mountain.
My first mountain moment.
Whistler mountain in Jaspar, mountains have memories, human memory, geological memory.
The mountains quake, the maker delivers, rescues, God’s presence is here.
The mountains made from clay.
We are the clay, God is the potter, takes hold.
We receive the God calling, seeking to be the “Yes”.
God strength comes, the witness to Jesus our brother, our beloved, living out the testimony.
We hear in those days, after that suffering. We hear, God in our time, be awake, already not yet. Life in the realm of healing and hope.

Kids @ the Manor, Friday November 27th, 4:00 pm
Please RSVP with Allison at manorroadkids@gmail.com

 

Hello Manor Road families,

It's that time of year where we deck our halls in preparation for a very special baby! This year, since we cannot be together indoors, we're going all out outdoors and we need your help. On Friday, November 27th from 4-5 pm we will be trimming the trees and creating a Christmas gnome wonderland on the grounds of MRUC

 

We also would like to assemble some Christmas decor and craft bags for our neighbors at the Roehampton shelter. If you have lightly used Christmas decorations, gift bags 🛍or extra craft supplies kicking around your house please consider

donating them. There will be hot cocoa with marshmallows and pizza too!

 Please let me know if you're planning to come and I look forward to hearing from you.


And Beyond...
