We are asking for donations of poinsettia plants. They add so much to our worship service. Be sure to identify your plant(s).

2 Pastor s Page Dear Friends In Christ, We are finally starting to catch up with the commercial Christmas that began back in August, or was it July 5 th? Christmas sales, Christmas Trees, everyone trying to get a step ahead of the other to make the necessary sales. Even Black Friday, the day that marks GO! for real Christmas shopping keeps moving up with Pre-Black Friday sales offered days before the big day. The commercial Christmas is often draining. It tells us what to do for Christmas, it attempts to give meaning to Christmas, and it demands a financial sacrifice.in other words, the commercial Christmas easily becomes an idol, that which we turn to for life. Gifts and gatherings are all very much an important part of Christmas for all of us. The task before us is to keep our perspective. Advent is the four weeks before Christmas. These four weeks help us keep perspective on what is important about Christmas and our Christmas preparations. Rather than buying, we spend time reflecting on life, our own lives and our need for a savior. Advent is a time to step away from the commercial side of Christmas to the faith side. This year Parish Three and Good Hope will prepare for Christmas together as we celebrate Advent on Sunday evenings beginning December 3 rd. We ll reflect on our need for Hope, Peace, Love, and Joy - all of the things the commercial Christmas offers but never fulfills. Take time to come and join us as we prepare for the coming Christ and renew a faith perspective on Christmas. In Christ, Pastor Kim Peterson

3 MINUTE BIBLE STUDY The First Commandment reads, You shall have no other gods before me. Luther asks, What does this mean? The answer, We are to fear, love, and trust God above all else. In other words, whatever we trust for life becomes our god. 1. As we prepare for Christmas how can we cross the line when all of the things of Christmas become what we fear, love, and trust for life? according to your word; 30 for my eyes have seen your salvation 31 that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, 32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel. 4. What did the presence of the promised savior mean for Simeon Financially? Emotionally? 2. What happens to our Christmas experience when all of the things of Christmas become most important Financially? Spiritually? 5. When you finally see the promised Savior, what does he mean for you Financially? Emotionally? Emotionally? Spiritually? Spiritually? 3. In Luke 2, Simeon was awaiting the Promised Savior. When he finally saw him he said, 29 Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace, ADVENT is the season of hope. May you be blessed as your hope for life is fulfilled in Christ Jesus.

BOX 351 TITONKA, IA Return Service Requested IT CAME TO PASS IN THOSE DAYS THAT THERE WENT OUT A DECREE FROM CAESAR AUGUSTUS THAT ALL THE WORLD SHOULD BE TAXED; AND THIS TAXING WAS FIRST MADE WHEN CYRENIUS WAS GOV- ERNOR OF SYRIA. AND ALL WENT TO BE TAXED EVERY ONE INTO HIS OWN CITY. AND JOSEPH ALSO WENT UP FROM GALILEE, OUT OF THE CITY OF NAZARETH, INTO JU- DEA, UNTO THE CITY OF DAVID WHICH IS CALLED BETHLEHEM. BECAUSE HE WAS OF THE HOUSE AND LINEAGE OF DAVID, TO BE TAXED WITH MARY HIS ESPOUSED WIFE, BEING GREAT WITH CHILD. AND SO IT WAS THAT WHILE THEY WERE THERE, THE DAYS WERE ACCOMPLISHED THAT SHE SHOULD BE DELIVERED AND SHE BROUGHT FORTH HER FIRST-BORN SON AND WRAPPED HIM IN SWADDLING CLOTHES, AND LAID HIM IN A MANGER BECAUSE THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN
