6 December 17, AS WE GATHER If you light the candles of an Advent wreath at church or at home, it s likely that the color of the candle you light this Sunday is pink. It s also likely that this is the only pink candle on the wreath. Pink is a color of joy. In fact, this Third Sunday in Advent is commonly referred to as Rejoice Sunday. But don t confuse the joy we celebrate this Advent with a passing happiness. No, the joy we have this Advent is greater. It lasts always. That s what today s Epistle assures us when Paul writes, Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you (1 Thessalonians 5:16 18). Only in Jesus, the coming Savior, can we rejoice in good times and bad times, busy times and quiet times, sick times and healthy times. In Christ, we rejoice always! HOLY COMMUNION ~ Holy Communion is celebrated today. Lutherans believe and teach that in this precious meal we receive not only the bread and wine, but also Christ's true Body and Blood given and shed for the forgiveness of sins. Proper spiritual preparation is necessary to rightly receive this sacrament. Please read the Communion policy card in the bookrack of your pew. Speak to an usher if you have any questions. Please complete the Communion card and pass it to the usher as you go up for Communion. For Communicants with medical difficulties, individual cups of grape juice are available in the center section of the serving trays. Help yourself, or ask the server. Our church is faithful to the Biblical practice of using wine for the Lord s Supper, but makes exceptions for medical reasons.

7 Like us on Facebook and see upcoming events at Trinity! https://www.facebook.com/tlcabbotsford or visit our December 31, AS WE GATHER Not only has the Lord come to a manger in Bethlehem, but now He has also come to His own temple in Jerusalem. The building that itself was to be a sign of God s presence among His people now becomes the very place where Jesus is presented to the Lord. Promised for centuries, salvation has come, and all nations shall see the glory of the Lord. As Simeon beholds this glory in the face of Jesus Christ, he embraces redemption in his arms. Through the Word you will hear today, you, too, will embrace Christ and His saving work. Sing of His glory! God has come to you! Lutheran Women s Missionary League Canada Annual Prayer Pal Party A big thank you to all who helped in any way with the Prayer Pal Party, especially spouses who toil in the kitchen with the dishwasher, and those who help set up and later remove the tables and chairs. It takes many people to make these events happen, and we could not do it without your help. The Abbotsford Food Bank will receive a donation of $ thanks to your generous offerings. There was a lot of delicious food, and laughter, while we learned what it means to be An Ornament for Christ. Best wishes to all for a blessed Christmas.
