Holiday Gratitude Day 12

Today, the Second Sunday of Advent, I’m grateful for the Holy Eucharist at St. Clement’s, for the beautiful music of Advent Carols, for a new family who joined us today, for old friends from Australia visiting, for smiles, hugs, and much aloha at the cookie slam to follow the service, for our Advent Discussion Group, for playing children, for walking sticks and wheelchairs, for broken bread and pungent wine, for new grown beards and freshly made faces, for angel earings and aloha shirts. And I’m thankful for our fresh smelling Christmas Tree, for time with friends and locally made Manoa pizza, and theology read before bedtime.
