The Fourth Sunday of Advent


Keith and Brenda assembled a composite Christmas pageant using slides from last year and from 1993. The little children in the earlier version are grownups now, and it was fun to see what changes and what remains the same in acting out the story of Jesus' birth in Bethlehem.

Bokamoso Returns!


In January, 2012 Seekers Church will once again be blessed by a visit from the Bokamoso Youth Centre in Winterveldt, South Africa. We just heard from the Bokamoso Program Director that they have their visas, and travel arrangements are on track. The group will be arriving on January 4th. They are scheduled to bring the Word to our worship on Sunday, January 15th. We hope you will join us to hear first-hand their vibrant hope for the future. To see where else they will be appearing, check their calendar on the Bokamoso Foundation web site. 


Here is a new video about the hopes and dreams of the people of Bokamoso!

The Second Sunday of Advent


Well, we're entering the Advent season, and we heard today from the Gospel of Mark how John the Baptist prepared the way for the Lord, and made straight paths for him. "I baptize you with water," John said, "but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."


That's an interesting theme – the idea that we sometimes enter a crucial turning point in our lives, and we know it because there's a herald, a voice crying out – or just someone who says, "Listen to me, but don't make the mistake of thinking I'm God. Why, I'm not even worthy to untie God's sandals. I can make it easier for you to find God, and then I'll get out of the way."
