Old photographs and faded flyers from Advent’s founding were tucked into the floral arrangements that decorated the Fellowship Hall for the 30th Anniversary Luncheon this past Sunday. “Look how young little so-and-so is!” “I had no idea you used to have such long hair!” “Check out that mustache…” Such comments and laughter could be heard as members of the congregation and former pastors gathered for the special meal hosted by the Outreach Committee.
As some of the old-timers reminded us during the meal, Advent went through several periods during those three decades when the congregation thought the doors were going to close. Each time God said, I’m not finished – and neither are you! In that spirit of faith and enthusiasm, we look forward to the future.
