Advent in East Geelong

from w
Being the third week of Advent there is plenty of material for the children's time in church. At East Geelong Uniting Church we have different ministers/leaders each week because we are in the situation of waiting to call a new minister, so there are often surprises. Today the Rev Heather Marshall led a lovely service that challenged us to be adults at Christmas time and look much further than the Bethlehem story. (I like the song 'Mary did you know' for the same purpose as it looks towards the adult Jesus.) Anyway we enjoyed watching the children making up words associated with Advent and here are some photos I took this morning. Our grandkids weren't there today as they are away at Hall's Gap with the Baptist youth camping. Our family get ecumenical at times which is good.
