From the parish survey: Did you know that almost half of the parishioners here at CSMSG have been worshipping here for under 20 years, and 20% for under 10 years? We are learning a lot about our parish from the survey. Thank you for participating. The results are posted in the main hall.
Did you know that the season of Advent anticipates the coming of Christ in three different aspects: in the flesh at Bethlehem, in our hearts daily, and in glory upon his return? This season offers us the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and reminds us to be alert for his second coming.

MONDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY: The Wisdom of Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes. As someone who loves the Old Testament, Fr. Peter Speropulos is excited to explore its Wisdom Writings with the Women’s Bible Study. His hope is that studying these books will whet the appetite for scripture itself and will provide for a thoughtful godliness that has the steadiness of Proverbs, the resilience of Job, and the sharp realism of Ecclesiastes. In short, for a wisdom, to not only study, but to live by. Please join us on Mondays from 9-9:45 AM in the Armstrong Room!

POINSETTIA PICKUP
Look for your poinsettia order form in the mail! Proceeds will benefit the Nicaraguan Ministry. 

FESTIVAL OF NINE LESSONS AND CAROLS: The traditional and much-beloved Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, as we know it today, was adapted by The Very Reverend Eric Milner-White for use at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge on Christmas Eve 1918. In his words, ‘The main theme is the development of the loving purposes of God ...’ seen ‘through the windows and words of the Bible’. The Christmas story unfolds interspersed by seasonal carols as the story of the birth of the Christ Child is recounted through word and music. The center of the service is still found by those who ‘go in heart and mind’ and who consent to follow where the story leads. Please plan to join us for this very special liturgy. A reception will follow the service.

Thursday, December 19

WOMEN'S WEEKEND RETREAT:  The Rev. Susan Guthrie will lead us in retreat entitled; Dark Love: Meeting the Beloved at the Empty Tomb . Mary Magdalene comes to the tomb not expecting anything, but she leaves with everything. So it is with our own prayer - we come in darkness, but leave as apostles. With John 20:1-18, we look at Mary’s transformation as we contemplate our own encounter with the Beloved in the “dark love” deepening from contemplation to mystical union. 
The retreat begins at the Mercy Center on Friday at 5 PM and ends on Saturday afternoon. Brochures will be in the mail soon. Contact Laurie for more information at 314.721.1502 or Laurie@csmsg.org .
More information about Suzanne can be found at http://edgeofenclosure.org/aboutsuzanne.html . Mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss this retreat!
