This Saturday evening at the 5:40 with prayer and song and words and silence, we will continue our expectant waiting for the birth of the Child. We will ponder Joseph’s experience and choices. He wanted to opt out and reject what was happening to Mary. God showed him he had an essential role to play in supporting Mary’s obedience. Each of us has gifts needed to realize God’s plan. Will we opt out because our plans may need to change or things become inconvenient? We will then gather to share a meal and the company of neighbours and friends.
