This Sunday marks the third Sunday in Advent; Joy Sunday. There is great beauty in the season, but also great need, leading at times for us to wonder how we can feel joy. While culture says cheer, we can be overwhelmed with the drive of consumerism, the frenzy of a full calendar, and grief. Not to mention the continued wars and unrest, dehumanization of immigrants and people of color, and the cold truth that many in our communities do not have enough food to fill their bellies or a place to call home. In the midst of all this, where does joy have a place? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on Mary and her song of joy as resistance and the humanizing connection of joy
