Mindful Making:
A night of creating for yourself
Friday, November 20th, 7pm via Zoom (link provided after registration)
Please register here: 

Mindful Making is a night that uses simple self-care strategies to create artwork that is meaningful to the artist. It is not meant to be public or compared to
others; instead, TJ will help individuals ground themselves in their home and use their emotions and thoughts to create simple yet powerful works of art. These strategies and activities can be applied anywhere and adapted to any setting or person.
Hope for the Holidays: Finding Joy, Love, Peace, and Hope in the Lessons and Carols of the Season
This Advent season, we can all use an extra dose of hope for the Holidays. The season of Advent is traditionally celebrated as a period of fervent expectation. We look to the future and wait with hopeful anticipation for the movement and glory of God, both through the Christ child, Jesus, and in the Kingdom of God. In 2020, we hope that this Advent devotional series can serve as a daily dose of that hopeful anticipation for better days to come. We will highlight stories of joy, hope, love, and peace that persist, even in seasons of grief, fear, or uncertainty. This year we are also excited to utilize this devotional series to share bits and pieces of our traditional lessons and carols service with the help of our Marsh Chapel Choir.
