Sunday of Joy

Good people of West Parish,

This Sunday, December 16, is the Third Sunday of Advent.   We will light our third candle, traditionally pink for this “lighter“ Sunday of Joy.

Don’t forget to wear your festive/ugly/colorful Christmas sweaters on Sunday to add to the joyous mood!

And remember: Joy is not the same as happiness.   We can feel deep joy and profound heartache at the very same time.     

Advent can hold it all.
