What Wondrous Love Is This

Worship this Sunday finds us in worship on the fifth Sunday of Advent. We share from the gospel of John, chapter twelve, and hear Jesus speak of his approaching death. In light of the death of Jesus, the Chancel Choir will sing an anthem titled, "What Wondrous Love Is This."

During this worship, we also have the joy of sharing in the sacrament of baptism. We will baptize Evelyn Claire Klingman. Evelyn is the daughter of Sarah and Justin Klingman, the granddaughter of Laura and David Elkins. I am excited and thankful to take part in this baptism, to know God acting in this holy moment, and to have all of us in this community of faith remember how we are gathered in the embrace of God by these waters of baptism.
