Advent Giving Tree

Beginning Sunday, December 2, Trinity's Advent Giving Tree will be in the Welcome Center filled with ornaments, each listing a special request by our partners at St. Lawrence Place or W.A. Perry Middle School.
Families who leave St. Lawrence Place to begin a new chapter in their lives take with them the household items they have been using during their stay. Trinity's Advent gifts will replace goods needed as new families move into the St. Lawrence Place community during the coming year. Advent Tree ornaments designate a most needed household item. Gift cards are also greatly needed and welcomed!  
W.A. Perry leaders have identified a critical need to provide back packs of nutritious weekend food for high need students. Money and food are needed to continue the program. Giving Tree ornaments offer an opportunity to "Pack the Pantry" at Perry by providing funds or non-perishable food.

Finally, Alive to the Moment at Hand

I will always remember a Thanksgiving from decades ago, in my parents’ home in Southern California. Not long after I left home for seminary on the East Coast, a rift opened in my relationship with them. Thousands of miles between us, my parents’ ailing health, and my tight finances all conspired against a reunion.

A church conference Jill and I planned to attend near their Santa Monica home finally brought about a homecoming. It was the perfect occasion to gather—with Jill and the boys and my older brother, Kevin, descending on the home place. Memories flooded me from the moment we walked up the steps of their sea-green stucco house perched on a rise above the sidewalk. My eyes took in the familiar worn places in the gold carpet, the tropical flowers in the backyard, the view of the Pacific from what had been my second story bedroom growing up. It didn’t take me long to show my family the park along the palm-lined coastal palisades, a couple of blocks away, where I had spent hours walking and jogging as a young person. I was seeing everything afresh.

Embracing Advent

Many have observed the genius of the liturgical year and been nourished by it. Following this calendar, this way of keeping time fuels our most common experiences with magnified meaning and purpose. We are transported from marking time to dwelling in the fullness of time. With Advent I, we are invited to begin anew. Consider keeping the beat. Resist the frenzy of the world. Expect to be glad.

We all know that Advent is when the Church prepares to celebrate the Feast of the Incarnation, the 12-day season that begins on December 25.
