Keeping the Flame of Hope Alive

Services at 9:00 and 10:30 AM. Third Sunday in Advent. This Sunday falls in the middle of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, an 8-day commemoration of the Maccabean overthrow of colonial rule. A Talmudic story tells how a jug of oil expected to last only one night, burned instead for eight. How do we keep the flame alive in these challenging times? How do we sustain strength and courage when events around us threaten to deplete us?
