Advent Giving Tree

On the first Sunday of Advent, December 3, Trinity’s Advent Giving Tree will be in the Welcome Center filled with ornaments, each listing a special request by our partners at St. Lawrence Place or W.A. Perry Middle School.

Families who leave St. Lawrence Place to begin a new chapter in their lives take with them the household items they have been using during their stay. Trinity’s Advent gifts will replace goods needed as new families move into the St. Lawrence Place community during the coming year. Advent Tree ornaments designate a most needed household item. Gift cards are also greatly needed and welcomed! It is not necessary to wrap your gift.

W.A. Perry leaders have identified a critical need to provide back packs of nutritious weekend food for high need students. Money and food are needed to continue the program.  Giving Tree ornaments offer an opportunity to “Pack the Pantry” at Perry by providing funds or non-perishable food.

A Season of Anticipation

I used to find the observance of Advent and Christmas somewhat confusing.  The two seasons are of course linked in a unified celebration of the coming of the Christ.  During Advent we kindle our expectation, we prepare, and we wait.  Then during Christmas we celebrate the coming of the one who exceeds our every expectation, the one who justifies our preparations, and the one who satisfies our longing.  Taken together, the two seasons manifest a pattern, a rhythm of anticipation and consummation, of suspense and resolution.

Canterbury of Columbia

The college years are what I would describe as a liminal phase of life. Sacred spaces, churches, and holy sites are often referred to as liminal spaces. A liminal space is a thin space, a threshold.  These are spaces of transition, transformation, and encounter with the holy. I believe that the college years can be much like that. We stand at a threshold of experiences in which we are no longer what we were, and yet, we are not quite what we will become.  

Canterbury of Columbia is a ministry in which young adults can walk with one another and the church through fellowship, worship, and service during this phase of life. Canterbury is a community of support and belonging that hopes to foster joy, solace, transformation, and discipleship as we explore what it means to live life in the way of Jesus together.
