The Book of Revelation… stuffed full of monsters and other nightmares and visions of heaven floating down from the sky: What could that possibly have to do with Advent?

This past Sunday, we participated in the Diocese-led event Social Media Sunday. Members of the congregation and our admin assistant Kate posted to our social media accounts from church, from music rehearsals, and from the Great Lakes Water Walk with the hashtag #SMS17.
